It is the world’s oldest annual marathon and along with its long and dramatic history, the unforgiving course that spans the 42 kilometers between Hopkinton and Boston, and the fact that most runners must qualify to make it to the start, it is a race in which great stories are made.

For this week’s episode of The Shakeout, we asked you to share your Boston Marathon stories –and you answered.


We would like to thank the Ontario Media Development Corporation for their contributions to this podcast.
