More than 2,000 Runners from Greater Boston will Work Hard and Play Hard at Annual Half Marathon Along Boston’s Coastal Region
The half marathon route will begin and end at Suffolk Downs, taking runners along the fast, flat surfaces of Revere Beach Blvd and Ocean Ave and throughout East Boston and Revere. Ten party stations will be set up throughout the course to keep runners energized and motivated, and runners can celebrate with an ice cold Michelob ULTRA at the post-event race party (available to participants 21 & over who present valid identification). There will also be a 5K route for those that wish to participate, but do not want to run the entire 13.1 miles. Nearly 2,000 runners are expected to participate.
“At Life Time, the Healthy Way of Life Company, we are excited to be a part of the storied Boston running community,” said Kimo Seymour, Vice President of Life Time Athletic Events. “The Michelob ULTRA Boston 13.1 Marathon combines a beautiful course and exciting post race festivities that will provide a fantastic experience to our athletes.”
Leading up to the 2014 Michelob ULTRA Boston 13.1 Marathon, there will be a series of training runs every Sunday from July 20 – Sept. 14, 2014 hosted by Life Time.
This will be the first year that the Michelob ULTRA Boston 13.1 Marathon will be produced by Life Time. In January, Life Time acquired US Road Sports and Entertainment Group, which produced the Michelob ULTRA 13.1 Marathon series.
