On July 25th at 11am a group of runners handpicked by RunKeeper will face-off against a Green Line trolley leaving from Boston College station. The race will last 4.1 miles, ending at Blandford street (where the "B" Line goes underground).
RunKeeper.com will have four of their employees/runners using live tracking as they run, and another RunKeeper employee also using live tracking as he sits comfortably in the Green Line as it makes it's way from BC to Blandford. As soon as the race starts you will be able to follow both the runner and the trolley in one single map live stream -- right here
