Looking to Run Boston in 2020? We Can Help!

April 25, 2019

Boston Marathon still on your mind?  For almost any marathoner, it’s a bucket list race.  Whether you qualified for Boston in 2019, toed the line on Marathon Monday, and ran your best race yet (or didn’t); or you just missed your qualifying time to participate in the marathon this year – Boston has that magical effect on runners to come back and do it again and again.  After all, what’s not to love about that race?!  It’s a New England holiday where the entire city shuts down for the day and enjoys participating and supporting on Marathon Monday.  The race itself is point-to-point, super spectator friendly, has huge crowds, the infamous (and sometime crushing!!) Heartbreak Hill and that glorious finish line experience – it’s hard not to think about Boston 2020.  Did you know the qualifying standards have been adjusted to five minutes quicker for all age groups? WE CAN HELP YOU QUALIFY!

This year, The Run Formula boasted its largest contingent yet with 34 athletes qualifying for Boston Marathon.  A huge shoutout to the coaches and their athletes for their commitment, focus and dedication to running and getting to that start line.  A lot of the work came in 2018 to qualify for Boston – marathons were selectively chosen, a customized plan was created for each particular athlete built around proven training protocols and sessions that have produced countless training protocols.  And it worked. 
We want to get YOU there in 2020.
