Usually held on Patriots’ Day, the third Monday of April, the Boston Marathon never seems to fall off any runner’s radar. As the world’s oldest annual marathon dating back to 1897, it is no surprise that thousands aim to secure their place on the start line. Attracting 500,000 spectators each year and over 30,000 runners, the Boston Marathon in 1996 established a record as the world’s largest marathon with 38,708 entrants, 36,748 starters, and an incredible 35,868 finishers. In 2013, there was a tragic terrorist attack at the finish area of the Boston Marathon. Runners across the World have always remembered those affected by this tragedy, and now there is a movie called Patriots Day, starring Mark Wahlberg, which recalls the events of the bombing that day and the week after it took place. The movie shows how the people of Boston came together after the attack and the city displayed true strength of human compassion and courage.
