Boston Marathon

Monday April 18th, 2022
Boston, Massachusetts
Distance: Marathon

Among the nation’s oldest athletic clubs, the B.A.A. was established in 1887, and, in 1896, more than half of the U.S. Olympic Team at the first modern games was composed of B.A.A. club members. The Olympic Games provided the inspiration for the first Boston Marathon, which culminated the B.A.A. Games on April 19, 1897. John J. McDermott emerged from a 15-member starting field to complete the course (then 24.5 miles) in a winning time of 2:55:10.

The Boston Marathon has since become the world’s oldest annually contested marathon. The addition of principal sponsor John Hancock Financial Services in 1986 has solidified the event’s success over the past 30 years and ensures it well into the future.

The 124th Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, October 11, 2021. Normally it is held on Patriots’ Day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and it should return to that date in 2022. The 2020 race was cancelled due to Covid-19. The Boston Marathon is sponsored by John Hancock.

To qualify for the Boston Marathon, athletes must meet time standards which correspond to their age and gender.
