Brenda Brundage

The RooSport is excited to be participating in the 2013 Boston Marathon Expo this year!

The Boston Marathon is the oldest annual marathon in history. It is held on Patriots ’ Day, the third Monday of April .

In this short article, we’ll talk about what to bring to The Boston Marathon, what day The Boston Marathon starts on this year, how to qualify for The 2013 Boston Marathon, and more.

History of The Boston Marathon

The Boston Marathon was started in 1897, inspired by the first modern-day marathon competition in the 1896 Summer Olympics.  In the beginning there were only 18 participants. It since has grown to a field of over 20,000 participants.  It is one of the world’s best-known road racing events.

Running The Boston Marathon

If you are a runner, at some time in your life you probably have aspired to run the Boston Marathon. It is a goal of runners alike, and a dream that has been realized by many. It is geared toward the elite athlete. Because of the high standards set, many runners push themselves in training to meet the strict times set for the different age groups. The official Boston Marathon website lists the qualifying times set forth, and also a list of the Marathons that you can participate in to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

This year, athletes from over 40 countries have been invited to participate.  Americans Ryan Hall and Kara Goucher will be two of the runners competing from the United States.
