BOSTON MARATHON

"The mother of marathons" - the most traditional!

The myth "Boston Marathon" makes every marathon heart beat faster. It is the oldest city marathon in the world and is one of the World Marathon Majors. The Boston Marathon differs from the other marathons because of its tradition and longevity as well as the receipt of the start number (qualification) and is not in vain referred to as the highlight of running. The best runners meet every year on Patriots Day for the big showdown on the challenging, undulating stretch between sleepy Hopkinton and Boston. Our running expert, Peter Camenzind, raves about the Boston Marathon: "Unique is the top organization and fantastic atmosphere. All around me only ambitious marathoners - my most beautiful marathon!

As a specialized marathon tour operator, we can fulfill your dream. We also have a small contingent for those who do not meet the qualification criteria.

Number of participants: 36'000
Start time: 10.00 am Time
limit: 6h

The registration procedure starts in September.

Once all qualifying runners have received confirmation from Boston, we will award the "non-qualified" start numbers. 

The city of Boston has the oldest city marathon and is also one of the oldest cities in the United States. The metropolis is also one of the wealthiest and culturally richest in America. A trip to Boston is an absolute highlight!
