Trail Running Course

Actual Boston Marathon Course Video

I found this cool video that was taken while driving the entire Boston marathon route. If you are new to the course this is definitely worth checking out. It definitely provides a level of familiarity that will be nice on race day.

A commenter also included a video time reference with respect to location on the course. You can see that info below. Of course, I can’t validate it but I assume it is correct.
