Marathon Sports

From the crowds who cheer on marathoners to the city-dwellers who do bridge loops along the Charles, Boston is a runner’s city. And no place helps locals log the miles like Marathon Sports. Marathon has the largest selection of shoes from Adidas, New Balance, and Nike, and an all-star staff that will pick out just the pair you need. Throw in a great selection of sports bras, wicking shirts, shorts in any length, and information on local races, and you have everything you need to get moving.
