Boston Marathon

Monday April 19th, 2021
Boston, Massachusetts
Distance: Marathon

The 124th Boston Marathon originally scheduled for April 20 was postponed to September 14 and then May 28 it was cancelled for 2020. The next Boston Marathon is scheduled for April 19, 2021.

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, April 20, 2020, Patriots’ Day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and for the 34th consecutive year the Boston Marathon will be sponsored by John Hancock.

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