Support Team MTF Today!  

The Boston Marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon and running it is a major “bucket list” item for serious distance runners throughout the world. The John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program provides a way for runners who might not otherwise qualify, to participate. This is the eighth consecutive year that MTF has participated in this prestigious program.

"I chose AMTA because they are committed to advancing the profession."
