Tuesday 28 February 2017
Boston West Hospital are pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring the Boston Marathon
Boston Marathon 2017 is on it's 2nd year after a successful first year's event. This is the UK's flattest marathon course in the country, and is on the same day as the famous US Boston marathon.
This year Boston Marathon will be run on Bank Holiday Monday, April 17. Already 500 runners have signed up for the Lincolnshire event, on what has been dubbed the flattest marathon course in the world.
Event secretary, Boston West Hospital consultant, Mr Harish Kurup confirmed that the course will be the same as last year, starting in the Market Place, then out to Wrangle and finishing at the college. There will also be a half marathon again and a three km fun run for the 12 to 18-year -olds.
Chairman Richard Austin points out that the Boston Marathon is a great chance for local charities to raise funds. Individual runners can be sponsored. Alternatively a five-person relay team can run the half marathon course.
Some staff at Boston West have already registered for the event, which is expected to attract the maximum number of 800 entrants
