Whether it was last year or more than a decade ago, we hope your experience running the Boston Marathon was one you'll always cherish. We don't often e-mail our past participants, but we're excited to tell you about a film we know you'll want to see.
BOSTON, the first full-length documentary film about the Boston Marathon, is coming to screens across the United States for one night only on April 19. Narrated by Academy Award® winner Matt Damon, BOSTON chronicles the oldest annually-contested marathon from its origin to the 2014 race. Evolving from a working man's challenge to welcoming foreign athletes and eventually women participants, the Boston Marathon is the stage for many firsts and helped pave the way for the modern marathon.

The documentary received exclusive access from the Boston Athletic Association to race archives and rarely-seen footage from decades of race history.
Produced and directed by award winning filmmaker/marathoner Jon Dunham (Spirit of the Marathon I & II) and produced by Academy Award® nominee Megan Williams, and executive produced by Academy Award® nominee Frank Marshall (Back to the Future, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Sully).
BOSTON is presented by John Hancock Financial in association with The Kennedy/Marshall Company.
We hope the film brings back fond memories of your experience racing the Boston Marathon.
