The Boston Marathon UK 2019 on Sunday, April 14, is set to be a record breaker.

The entry deadline has now passed and a record 1,514 runners have registered for the full marathon, the half marathon and the 5k fun run.

Runners will be from all over the UK, Eastern Europe, America, Canada, Hong Kong, Germany, Ireland, Switzerland and Austria.

It is anticipated by organisers that Boston Market Place will fill with up to 3,000 people ready for the start at 9am.

The marathon has been growing in strength year on year and this entry is 30 per cent increased on last year’s.

With ideal weather conditions other records could fall at what has been dubbed “the UK’s flattest marathon”.

With upwards of 150 race marshals needed to help hand out water and undertake other duties organisers still want to hear from volunteers. To get involved call 01205 368351 or book in online at
