The 2012 Boston Marathon

Global Immersions Recruiting - Friday, April 13, 2012

This Monday, April 16th marks the 116th Boston Marathon. As the world’s oldest annual marathon, The Boston Marathon attracts over 20,000 runners and 500,000 spectators each year. The Marathon is New England’s most widely viewed sporting event each year, and runs through eight Massachusetts cities and towns: Hopkinton, Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, Newton, Brookline, and Boston.


Originally a local event, The Boston Marathon’s fame and status now attracts runners from all over the world. Thousands of spectators line the sides of the course for the entire distance of the race to cheer the runners on, encourage them, and provide free water and snacks to any of the runners. The race is traditionally held on Patriot's Day, the third Monday in April, often referred to by local residents as "Marathon Monday."

For more information about the race, visit the Boston Athletic Association’s website here.
