Since 1969 the Marathon has been held on the 3rd Monday in April which is when the Massachusetts officially celebrates the Patriots' Day holiday.
The course runs through 26 miles 385 yards of winding roads into the center of Boston, where the official finish line is located at Copley Square alongside the Boston Public Library. The race runs through eight Massachusetts cities and towns: Hopkinton, Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, Newton, Brookline and Boston.
