Boston Marathon Accommodation

by Evan Moltz
(Hopkinton, MA)

'Stay at the Start' has established a network of just over 40 families in Hopkinton (where the Boston marathon starts) that want to provide Boston Marathon accommodations in their home during Boston Marathon weekend to registered marathon runners. On a first come, first serve basis - Stay at the Start is matching registered runners interested in staying in Hopkinton with these host families.

There is no charge to stay in a host family’s home as a guest. In exchange for your stay of up to 4 nights, Stay at the Start is asking for a donation to help support the community based Hopkinton Food Pantry that services families in need.

Stay at the Start is an all volunteer, not-for-profit organization. Stay at the Start is all about building community. Our goal is for both the runners and host families to have an enhanced marathon experience, for this to become part of the Boston Marathon tradition, and to raise much needed money for the Hopkinton Food Pantry.

If you are a registered Boston Marathon 2010 Runner interested in staying in Hopkinton for April 16, 17, 18, and/or 19 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and/or Monday nights), please reply and more information will be forwarded to you by email including transportation logistics, meal options and special Hopkinton weekend events.

Thank you for your interest.
