Need help getting pumped up for this year’s Boston Marathon? This trailer for a new movie about the iconic race should do the trick.

Earlier this week, a teaser for the first-ever documentary about the Marathon dropped on Facebook. Appropriately titled BOSTON, the film will explore the “rich history of America’s premiere race – the oldest annually run marathon in the world,” according to the production’s website.

The trailer for BOSTON is set to get a lot of exposure on Marathon Monday as it will be playing all over the race, from the jumbotron at Fenway Park to the Marathon expo, and even the finish line.

The film is being directed by award-winning marathoner and filmmaker Jon Dunham, who’s previous credits include Spirit of the Marathon, which featured runners preparing for the 2005 Chicago Marathon, and Spirit of the Marathon II, which was set at the 2012 Rome Marathon.

Endorsed by the Boston Athletic Association, BOSTON will feature Olympians Shalane Flanagan and Meb Keflezighi, according to the film’s Facebook page.

Check out the trailer below.

BOSTON is set to be released in 2017.
