About this Event
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training program is proud to take a team of runners to the 128th Boston Marathon presented by Bank of America.
Inspired by the first marathon competition in the 1896 Olympics, the Boston Marathon® is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world's best-known road racing events. The course runs through eight Massachusetts cities and towns, challenging runners through Heartbreak Hill, culminating in the center of Boston where the official finish line is located at Copley Square, alongside the Boston Public Library.
