While the Boston Marathon course is considered advantageous — and ineligible for records — due to its net elevation loss and point-to-point format, researchers have found times there to be slower than those on other World Marathon Majors courses, including London, Berlin, Chicago and New York.

The study, led by researcher Philip Maffetone and published by PLOS One, cites race times of the top-10 male and top-10 female finishers of all races in the WMM for the years 2005-2014. London and Berlin were shown to be the first and second fastest courses, respectively, for both men and women, while the top finishing times of men and women at Boston were shown to be typically slower than all other venues.
