The Boston UK Mayflower 400 Marathon

Around 3,000 runners, supporters and spectators are expected to take to the streets for next year's Boston Marathon UK - and organisers have adapted the popular annual event to coincide with Mayflower 400.

Billed as Boston Mayflower Marathon UK 2020, it will feature an enactment of the 1607 'Separatists' in Boston in period costume at the start of their epic expedition which first took them to Holland and ended in New England in 1620 - a major milestone in the history of North America.

The race starts at Boston Market Place and finishes at Boston College, on Skirbeck Road.

Closing date for registration is Saturday, 4 April, and for more information visit the website at www.bostonmarathon.co.uk
