Marathon Sports

Five years after the marathon bombings rocked the city, Marathon Sports’ Boylston Street location—the site of the first explosion—has become emblematic of Boston’s strength, compassion, and resolve. In addition to outfitting the area’s pavement-pounders with a wide selection of technical clothes and sneakers, the store engages the community with running clubs, classes, high school "team nights" and more. Because everyone’s fitness routine could use a little extra support. Multiple locations.
