About the event:
The Boston marathon is world renowned and first commenced in 1897, making it the oldest annual marathon in the world. As a result of its history, along with its reputation as one of the most challenging, it is on many runner’s bucket lists, making it the most sought after race in the world.

Getting a spot isn’t easy though, to be considered, all requirements have to be met a year in advance and the prerequisite running standards are relatively high.

The race starts at Hopkins, leading the marathon racers through four hills and eight towns before arriving at the Black Bay in Boston.

From the starting line along Tomesello Way, runners then head north for the first mile toward the southern end of Revere Beach, where they'll turn right and head south onto Revere Beach Road. The next couple of miles unfold taking runners south into Winthrop, a small community that's a suburb of nearby Boston located on the peninsula near the airport, looking out onto Boston Harbor. Runners make a loop around Shirley Street, Seafoam Avenue and Winthrop Shore Drive before heading back north toward Revere Beach, where they'll start a long, out-and-back stretch along the oceanfront.

Runners will get to see the beach and the waves coming in from the ocean for virtually all of the next eight miles of the half marathon, as the course takes runners all the way north through Revere to the Point of Pines neighborhood. Here the course makes a loop around the point along Huntington Avenue, Rice Avenue and Lynnway before heading back onto Revere Beach Road for the return route south, but not before giving runners nearly a 360-degree view of the point all the way around.The next stretch of the race covers ground runners will already have run, as they make their way back along Revere Beach Road all the way south to the southern end of the beach again, and then make the right onto Tomesello Way to head back in to the finish line at Suffolk Downs.
