The Mayors Cup began in 1990 and the B.A.A., in partnership with adidas, has supported the event since 1997. The event is directed by USATF New England, with the cooperation of Boston Parks & Recreation and Boston Centers for Youth & Families.

Races include the Men's Championship 8K, Women's Championship 5K, Youth Races with distances of just over a mile, and the Franklin Park 5K.

The Franklin Park 5K (3.1 miles) seeks to give local runners, especially road racers, perhaps their single cross country racing opportunity of the year. The race offers the same race course and cross country experience as the Womens Championship 5K and Mens Championship 8K. The event has been slotted within the schedule of events to allow its participants to watch the championship competitions.
