Our quarter- and half-marathon runners will cross our “finish line” at Pond Road in Wellesley, where your cheering and support, along with a great view of the marathon, will make this an amazing day for all.

Nobles vans will shuttle runners to starting points in Hopkinton and Framingham. Spectators can park at Wellesley College lots with continuous shuttle service to our Pond Road location (for directions to these lots, visit ( If your student is participating, you will be getting an email with more information.
