On Monday, runners from around the world will arrive in Hopkinton by the thousands for the first regularly scheduled Boston Marathon since 2019. Along the way, some 500,000 spectators will be there to cheer them on as they make their way through the burbs to Boylston Street. Though running the historic race is a bucket list item for many Bostonians, cheering for the runners can be equally enthralling, whether it be from Marathon Park in Ashland, the peak of Newton’s notorious Heartbreak Hill, or, for those living directly on the route, from the comfort of their own driveway. For anyone looking to buy in a marathon town, here are homes on the market in each of the communities along the Boston Marathon route, from Hopkinton to Boston, and the average list price of homes on the market there on the Multiple Listing Service (as of press time):
