Could you outrun the Boston Green Line T?

Even before this iconic showdown between Rita Jeptoo and the C Line at the 2014 Boston Marathon, we’ve all thought as we wait for the MBTA Green Line Train to get us...anywhere, anywhere at all:

“I wonder if I could outrun this thing.”

Well, some dedicated RunKeeper fans decided to take on the B Green Line trolley train, once and for all. ...

The course: Boston College T stop to Blandford Street T stop ...

So, indeed, you can outrun the Green Line. But you have to run four 6-minute-miles.
