Rita Banks is running again

Rita Banks, pictured, who won the ladies' section of the Boston Marathon 25 years ago, will again be competing.

 She has completed 206 marathons - 52 in one year alone, all around the world and is a World Games gold age group medal winner.

It's the flattest in the world, offers a great chance of personal bests and will be back again on Sunday, April 18, 2018, with global participation.

As many as 1,500 runners are expected, and 350 have already booked their place.

This event has quickly become a favourite because so many runners have achieved personal best times. The course begins in Boston Market Place, wends its way to Wrangle by way of Freiston and Butterwick, returning via Fishtoft and ending at Boston College

There will be a full marathon, half marathon and 5k (three-mile) fun run.

The Boston Marathon UK provides an excellent opportunity for anyone to raise money for their chosen worthy cause either by running the full 26 miles, the 13 miles or simply the three-mile fun run.
