    THE BQ.2 RACES ARE THE BEST QUALIFYING RACES IN THE COUNTRY. THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF QUALIFIERS ANYWHERE!

    In 2019, 58% of finishers qualified for Boston!

    You should only sign up for this race if you are going to be ready to qualify for Boston. To sign up before July 15 you'll need to run a "qualifying race" to sign up. Please check the table below.

    A race we designed specifically to give you a shot at getting to Boston in 2022. Limited to 330 runners.
    See our Qualifying times chart for qualifying times. THERE IS A 4:30 TIME LIMIT.

    (NOTE: WE DON'T KNOW THE REGISTRATION WINDOW FOR THE 2022 BOSTON MARATHON YET!) 

    Brought to you by the same team from the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon. As runners, we know how important Boston is to you. And we know what it takes to get there. We’ve been there ourselves, and we’ve helped THOUSANDS of runners get there in our 17 years with the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon. And for 2021, we’re here to help you get there with a race focused completely on getting you to Boston 2022. CONTACT US WITH QUESTIONS donkern1@gmail.com, 616 293 3145 

    There are qualifying standards to get into this race. The reason we have qualifying standards is because WE WANT EVERYONE IN THIS RACE PREPARED TO QUALIFY FOR BOSTON! The table is below. For more on Boston Qualifying standards and info on their registration dates, CLICK

    Our sister BQ.2 race is being held in Geneva, Illinois. It's under different management and on a different registration platform. Don't get confused. They also do a Spring Chance BQ.2 in the spring. 

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
