This past Monday, I had the pleasure of attending a concierge event at the Boston Marathon RunBase on Boylston Street and received some valuable information. We were treated to presentations by both the marketing director of the B.A.A. and of Marathon Sports (where I get my Asics running sneakers!). They provided us with information on the RunBase Run Club as well as the schedule of events for the 2016 Boston Marathon, and I wanted to share that with you all!
