Information for Spectators
Runners in all three events on Sunday will really appreciate spectator support.
Could we ask spectators to kindly avoid driving, cycling and standing on the course. The 26.2 mile, full marathon route meanders through the town, it’s outskirts and very rural, agricultural land and much of it is on very narrow country lanes. Because the marathon route cannot be crossed we recommend spectators approach the lanes from roads branching off the A52 and park on these approach roads before they meet the route?

We have made 6 suggestions for viewing areas with good vantage points. Take a look at the list and the map for directions.
We know the Travellers Rest Cafe, Main Rd, Boston PE22 0AU will be open until 3pm on Sunday. There is also the Café at Johnson’s Garden Centre on the A52 and a number of pubs along the A52 and the town centre.
