The first post in a series detailing the history of Marathon Sports

Tomorrow is Small Business Saturday and it makes us reflect a bit on how far we’ve come as a company. 23 years ago Colin Peddie bought the original Marathon Sports location from Howard Sagrans and our story was born.

Thanks to a big leap of faith, we are here today – though we have grown to 11 locations in Massachusetts, we remain locally owned and operated and committed to the communities surrounding our store locations.

Next up in this series – the first years at Cambridge and how Marathon Sports Wellesley came into existence.
