This year, you can cruise into Marathon Monday by running with one of Boston’s finest and fastest.

Heartbreak Hill Running Company (HHRC) is hosting Marblehead native and four-time Olympian Shalane Flanagan for a Q&A and shakeout run on Saturday, April 15. The elite marathoner will answer your burning running questions, then lead the group on a two- to three-mile run.

If a brush with running greatness isn’t enough incentive, one registrant will also win an “intimate VIP Heartbreak Studio experience” with Flanagan and HHRC owner Dan Fitzgerald right after the group outing, plus a $200 Nike shopping spree and a free HotShot muscle cramp treatment.

Flanagan was set to run her fourth Boston Marathon this year, until she was sidelined by a back injury in February.
