Bos­ton Marathon

Where Boston - - WHERE CALENDAR -

Head to Boyl­ston Street for the 120th edi­tion of this pres­ti­gious race held an­nu­ally on Pa­tri­ots’ Day. Four for­mer Bos­ton cham­pi­ons lead a pack of 38 elite ath­letes, 10 of whom hold life­time best records un­der 2 hours, 6 min­utes. To break that down for read­ers who aren’t run­ning en­thu­si­asts: that’s in­sanely fast. Nav­i­gat­ing the Back Bay can prove chal­leng­ing, so grab a snack, pick a spot and cheer, cheer, cheer. Elite field ex­pected to cross the fin­ish line be­tween 12 pm and 12:30 pm. Boyl­ston Street, be­tween Ex­eter and Dart­mouth streets and then toast the oc­ca­sion with nas­tur­tium cock­tails and live mu­sic. 6:30 pm. Flow­ers on view all month. 25 Evans Way, 617.264.6045
