The following is a press release from team Framingham submitted to SOURCE media.
FRAMINGHAM – The Team Framingham 2023 program launched on Friday October 21, 2022 with the opening of registration for both runners and charities.
The registration period is closing at 4 p.m. this Thursday November 10.
The random selection drawing will take place on Thursday November 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Blumer Conference Room at the Framingham City Hall.
Twenty-two lucky Framingham residents and city and school department workers will be selected to be part of the 10th annual Team Framingham group of runners who will participate in the April 17, 2023 Boston Marathon with an entry provided to the City of Framingham by the Boston Athletic Association.
Five Framingham focused 501C3 charities will be selected by lottery to benefit from the fundraising of our team runners. Each team runner has a fundraising goal of $5,000 for one of the 5 charities selected.
In the 9 years of Team Framingham our team runners have raised more than $750,000 for deserving Framingham focused charities. 99% of our team runners have successfully completed the Boston Marathon with Team Framingham.
To be part of this great opportunity to run the Boston Marathon and to participate in the outstanding training program put forward by the Team Framingham Steering Committee and team mentors from the Greater Framingham Running Club, please check out our applications for runners and charities at the link below.
With only 4 days to go until the registration deadline, we have 33 runner applicants and 10 charity applicants.

And for this year only, our 10th anniversary, we have added a special opportunity for those runners who have applied 3 or more times for Team Framingham in the past but who were unsuccessful in getting an entry. Check out the runner application for details!!
“We are so excited to be launching our 10th annual Team Framingham program and proud of our record of fundraising and training success. We look forward to another successful Team Framingham program and hope to edge closer to that $1,000,000 fundraising mark,” stated Team Framingham Steering Committee Chair Mike Bower.
