Prepping for the Boston Marathon

Posted by Customer Support on

The 119th Boston Marathon is just around the corner. As the world's oldest marathon, qualifying for the Boston Marathon is a dream for many runners. The first event was held in 1897, and it was inspired by the first modern-day marathon competition during the 1896 summer Olympics. The first event had just 18 runners, but today there are over 30,000 runners, as well as over 500,000 spectators. The Boston Marathon is held every year on Patriot's Day, the third Monday of every month, and has become one of the most famous marathons in the world. This year's marathon will be held on April 21st and is less than 40 days away. Not only do runners have to train tirelessly for the event, but also they need to make sure they have the right running gear that will help them perform their best and remain comfortable throughout the race.
