BOSTON - THE FINISH LINE AND BEYOND
April of 2001 saw Marathon Sports open its third store along the Boston Marathon course (fourth store overall) at the Boston Marathon finish line, right in the heart of Boston's historic Copley Square. The store is unique for having, among its extensive array of heritage running shoes from decades past, a framed Oregon t-shirt worn by American running legend Steve Prefontaine.
Because of its proximity to the marathon's finish line, Marathon Sports Boston has, in a way, become part of the lore of the race, with tens of thousands of tourists and locals visiting the storied location each year over marathon weekend.
2001 also saw Marathon Sports bring home its fourth consecutive BEST OF BOSTON award for its excellent customer service and depth of product knowledge.
