Whether you’re running the Boston Marathon or not, Runner’s World is giving you a new way to experience the legendary road race.

For the first time, the running magazine is opening a three-day-long Boston Marathon pop-up experience on Boylston Street, offering a menagerie of events—from panels to book signings to workouts—that will get spectators and runners psyched for the 121st Boston Marathon. It will be open to the public from April 14 through 16.

Attendees can start each morning or end each day with a run led by Runner’s World editors, and keep heart rates up throughout the day with yoga, strength-training, meditation, and self-defense classes.

For those who don’t feel like sweating, the weekend also boasts a plethora of panels and seminars, including appearances by local Olympian Shalane Flanagan and Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon with a bib number. Seminars will cover topics including running your best Boston, celebrating women’s running, staying out of the medical tent, and more.

Guests also have the opportunity to win a limited-edition pair of Boston-themed running gloves, or tickets to the global premiere of the marathon documentary BOSTON. Runner’s World Editor-at-Large and 1968 Boston Marathon champion Amby Burfoot will also be on hand.

Check out the full schedule and sign up for individual events here.

Free, 4/14-4/16. 899 Boylston St., Boston, runnersworld.com.
