Since marathon running became a mass participation sport, many great events have appeared on the scene with most major worldwide cities hosting their own marathon event. The Boston Marathon is undoubtedly the most famous of modern day marathons.
Sports Tours International were shocked and deeply saddened by the incident at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this incident.
Boston Marathon – one of the fastest marathons in the World!
By participating in this iconic event, you will be in the company of the world’s top marathon runners. With the Boston Marathon, it really is the taking part that matters for the vast majority, and to be part of it is something VERY SPECIAL! As one of the 5 World Marathon Majors, you need to run the marathon in Boston, if you want to achieve the goal of running in each of the marathon majors. For 2014, the field has increased by 9,000 runners to 36,000 runners.
In 2011, the unofficial World record of 2:03:03 for the marathon distance was set after a blistering pace by Geoffrey Mutai, which blew away the breath of everyone in the running world.
