About the event

Widely considered the pinnacle of marathon competitions, the Boston Marathon has been a treasured tradition in Greater Boston since 1897. Sponsored by John Hancock Financial Services and managed by the Boston Athletic Association, the annual marathon is hosted on the third Monday of April and is open to both professionals and amateurs alike.

To participate, entrants must meet strict qualifications and adhere to certain rules of conduct. The 26-mile trek is notoriously challenging, often taking runners through varied topography and extreme weather. Despite this, as many as 30,000 people register to compete each year, out of a total spectator turnout of over 500,000.

In 1996, the Centennial Boston Marathon achieved a record-breaking 38,708 entrants, 36,748 starters and 35,868 finishers, cementing its status as one of the most widely participated sporting events in New England.

You know a marathon is special when the temperatures are hovering around freezing, the rain is pouring down, the headwind is 20+ mph, and all you can feel is the energy of the manic crowd cheering you on.

Everyone Marathoner dreams of this race. I certainly ran this race with lots of emotions. By far one of the greatest races I ever ran.

The greatest and best marathon in the world. From the moment my first flight en route to Boston was cancelled to arriving in a freezing Beantown at 12:30am the morning of the event to completing ( in the most brutal conditions ) this iconic marathon is something I will cherish for the rest of my days 😁😀
