Boston Marathon Photos: 26.2 Miles of In-Race Images

The Boston Marathon experience is unparalleled, and you've got to see it to believe it. We've run the Boston Marathon 13 times, and in recent years photographed the race literally on the run. We've shot hundreds of photos from inside the race, as we were running it, to capture the complete experience from Hopkinton to Boston.

Our top-selling books (proceeds go to charity) Boston Marathon: The Legendary Course Guide and Boston Marathon Portraits: Images of Inspiration (both of which are recommended by feature more than 200 photos from these in-race photo journeys. Here's a sampling, from the books, of what you'll experience on race day.
