Boston Big Local continues to support the Boston Marathon UK, which this year will be held on 15 April. In 2018 we have provided £2,000 of sponsorship for the event, which offers the flattest marathon in the UK. The route map shows a rise of only 11.2 feet between the highest and lowest points on the route.
