Boston Marathon 2011

April 15, 2011 by staff 

Boston Marathon 2011, The Boston Marathon is the holy grail of many marathoners. The single classification system and standards of time means that only a small percentage of the marathon runner is eligible to participate. Unless you are a charity runner, your only option is to spend years to get fitter and faster … and then have the perfect race to qualify.

Once found, however, there is no one true way to have a great day. The Boston Marathon is also distinguished by its course: a matter of point to point with significant hills that start at Kilometer 17, which culminated in the famous Heartbreak Hill. Are you excited yet? Let’s dig in!

A record of some technical problems, especially under-estimate the number of people who wanted to participate in 2011, led to a system crash and thousands of qualified people entering the race.

This year, more than 30,000 runners that are aligned in three distinct waves, a new approach to alleviate congestion at the starting line. With the overall level of competitiveness of the field hardened the participation of a number of charity runners, the event organizer only face the challenge of moving a disparate number of runners from around the course in a short period of time.

The BAA has been set as the standards of qualification for 2013. Also, people have the right to change record in a time scale based on their real-time rating. In other words, the quicker people will be able to register earlier than their counterparts who just made the cut.

The Boston Marathon is known for its viewers. Having run twice, I can personally attest to the fact that almost every single mile of the entire course is full of amateurs. The city likes the race, and support for the event is facilitated by a holiday in the city (Patriot Day) and one in the afternoon the Yankees / Red Sox game at Fenway. In addition to tracking standard text messages, which have provided a map of the course as a download.

If your family is trying to catch a glimpse of you in the field and at the finish line, the options are minimal, aside from renting a bike and break some laws. The best way is to take out D-Line to stop forest T. Which shall make the 16 mile course and after seeing that you can take the T to the finish. Alternatively, you can try to pull the same feat on the line C through Cleveland Circle, but the timing could be a problem since the distance is so short.

If your family and friends have a car and are doing the one-stop viewing, have considered Wellesley Center. Just after the infamous fans of the college women of the same name, this small downtown with restaurants, shops and wide sidewalks to create and cheers.

Important note: Make sure you set your logistics at the end of the day as soon as possible to avoid any problem about getting home, etc. There are signs on the street alphabet to facilitate the collection (do not forget to choose a family name or name with their fans! as large downtown hotels and similar brands. Whatever your plan, make everyone on the same page before race morning.
