The Boston Marathon is taking place in October for the first time after it was postponed and ultimately canceled in 2020 and delayed this year. Race officials said the marathon will return to its traditional Patriots Day date next year.

Runners this year will not be required to wear a mask while racing, but they will need to wear them on buses to and from the race. Masks will also be required and provided in all medical tents along the 26.2-mile route.

Runners — and everyone else — will need to wear masks indoors as part of Boston's indoor mask mandate. That includes the Boston Marathon Expo at the Hynes Convention Center in the three days leading up to the race.

Volunteers who will have direct interaction or close proximity with the runners must wear masks. Some will be provided additional personal protective equipment.
