Whether you’re a competitor in the 2012 Boston Marathon on Monday, April 16, or you’re just planning to watch and cheer on your favorite athletes, you’ll need a convenient place to stay while you’re in the area. Here at the viagra 100mg Kendall Hotel, we’re a short subway ride from downtown Boston and the final, most exciting portion of the course.
Now in its 116th year, the Boston Marathon is one of the best known and highly regarded road races in existence, attracting amateur and professional runners from all over the world. It’s traditionally held on the third Monday in April, Patriots’ Day, commemorating the start of the Revolutionary War. Competitors must qualify for the race by completing another certified marathon in under a certain time, which varies by
age and gender.
The most famous section of the race may be Heartbreak Hill, a challenging climb that
comes at the 20-mile mark at a time when many runners are hitting the notorious “wall.”
Each year, some 500,000 spectators line the 26.2-mile course to offer marathoners their support and encouragement.
But no need to worry about parking restrictions and road closures in the city while the race is under way! Just be our guest at the Kendall Hotel and catch the T at the Kendall/MIT Redline station, steps away from our front door. After the race, you can explore the incredible variety of things to see and do in Boston, or escape the hubbub and enjoy a relaxing dinner at our very own Black Sheep Restaurant.
