The Boston Marathon® is the world’s oldest annual marathon and one of world’s most prestigious road races. First run in 1897, the Boston Marathon® is organized by the Boston Athletic Association and has enjoyed the principal sponsorship of John Hancock Financial since 1986. $830,500 in prize money will be awarded to the top finishers in this year’s event.

The Boston Marathon is run each year on the third Monday of April – Patriots’ Day in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. From a field of 15 entrants and 10 finishers in the inaugural run, the race has grown to an international sporting event with 30,000 official entrants in this year’s race.

Boston is different than many other marathons as participants must qualify for entry by meeting stringent qualifying times before they can register. The race is run on a point-to-point course through eight cities and towns, and the 26.2-mile course has remained essentially unchanged over the years. In 2016, the race will be held on April 18.
