INSPIRATION IN ACTION


SIX CITIES, THREE CONTINENTS, ONE REMARKABLE GOAL

There's no limit to what we can accomplish. We can climb mountains, discover the next breakthrough, run extraordinary distances, and achieve things we never thought possible. With strength and resolve, we go forward in pursuit of our better selves. Each journey may be different, but no matter where you're headed, it all starts with health.

The first-ever Abbott World Marathon Majors celebrates the power of health and humanity at their best. More than 180,000 runners will compete in six of the world's most prestigious marathons — the Tokyo Marathon, Boston Marathon, Virgin Money London Marathon, BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, Bank of America Chicago Marathon and TCS New York City Marathon. These inspiring individuals, and the millions of family, friends, and spectators that support them, are proof that at our healthiest we can achieve amazing things.
