Today, runners from around the world will gather in Boston to take part in the city's most famous sporting event: the Boston Marathon. This iconic race, which dates back to 1897, is a test of endurance, perseverance, and grit, and has become synonymous with the city's spirit of resilience.

The race starts at 9:00 AM EST on Monday, April 17, and runs from Hopkinton to Boston. The route is 26.2 miles long and takes runners through several of the city's historic neighborhoods, including Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, Newton, and Brookline. The race ends on Boylston Street in the heart of downtown Boston.

The Boston Marathon is one of the most prestigious races in the world and is known for its strict qualifying standards. Only runners who have met a specific time based on their age and gender are allowed to participate in the race. This ensures that the race is filled with top-tier athletes and provides an exciting competition for both runners and spectators alike.

For those who are interested in watching the race, there are several options available. Spectators can line the streets along the race route and cheer on the runners as they pass by. They can also visit the finish line on Boylston Street to watch the runners cross the finish line.

If you're unable to attend the race in person, there are still ways to follow along with the action. The Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the race, provides live tracking on its website, allowing you to follow the progress of individual runners. You can also watch the race live on local TV stations or online via streaming services.

The Boston Marathon is more than just a race – it's a celebration of Boston's history and resilience. We at Focus Real Estate are proud to be a part of this great city and look forward to cheering on the runners as they make their way to the finish line.
