While a marathon ends at its finish line, the cheers, pain and glory of distance running’s most prestigious race will live on at the International Marathon Center in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

The International Marathon Center will be a world-class destination that inspires generations and celebrates the sport of marathoning. The center will include interactive exhibits, a hall of fame and conference center. Perched on one of the highest points in the MetroWest, the location provides a view of Boston, overlooks the town reservoir and connects to running trails in the State Park.

Set to begin construction in 2013, the International Marathon Center will be a groundbreaking complex that thrives with the energy and passion of runners, past, present and future.
