About this Event

About the Book:

Every third Monday each April since 1897, the fastest endurance athletes in the world converge on Boston, Massachusetts to run planet Earth’s most prestigious road race, the Boston Marathon. What began with fifteen runners toeing the start on a dirt road is now a global phenomenon, attracting millions of online viewers, more than 500,000 spectators, and 30,000 of the fastest athletes from 120 countries around the world. Books chronicle its storied history. Memoirs highlight its penchant for self-transformation. The Boston Marathon Handbook takes a different tack, delivering everything we need to know – how to prepare, what to wear, how to qualify, where to celebrate, who to emulate, how to race, and everything else critical (and not so critical) – to ensure race-day success.

About the Author:

Marc W. Pollina is a writer, runner, and entrepreneur. He has completed 26 marathons, including 18 Boston Marathons as a bandit, a charity runner, and a sub-3 qualifier. Pollina earned a BA in English Literature from Hampden-Sydney College, studied digital transformation at MIT, and founded an innovative cyber-media startup prior to penning his non-fiction debut. He and his family escape to the Cape when they're not running to and from (and all over) Boston and New York City.
