Boston Marathon


Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is pleased to announce that we have a limited number of invitational entries for the 2018 Boston Marathon through the John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program. Lace up your sneakers, unleash your inner G.I.R.L and run in support of GSEMA at this year’s marathon April 16, 2018. Applications are for athletes who are a minimum 18 years old as of April 16, 2018.

Funds raised will support GSEMA’s health and wellness programming. This year, thanks in part to funds raised by our marathon team, many girls across the council participated in sports and activities at our beautiful camp properties.

Runners will be required to raise a minimum of $7,500. The fundraising minimum of $7,500 should be considered a step to a higher fundraising stretch goal of $10,000 with individualized fundraising and training support provided by the council. We seek team members who are truly interested in raising significant funds to help our cause.

Runners who already have qualified for the race and have secured an entry may join Team Girl Scouts with a fundraising minimum of $1,500.

If you are interested in running for our team, application forms and a nonrefundable $40 application fee must be received by 11:59 PM on November 10, 2017. All fields of this application must be completed. Completion of this application does not guarantee you a spot on the team. Read the GSEMA Boston Marathon FAQ for more information.

Applications are now closed. Runners will be notified by late November 2017 whether or not their application has been accepted. Check back for a link to support Team Girl Scouts in the 2019 Boston Marathon.
