Get Geared Up

It seems like we’re in the deadest days of winter, but spring is closer than you think. Which means that spring races are closer than you think. Which means that the 128th Boston Marathon is right around the corner.

If you’re running from Hopkinton to Boston this year, there’s a good chance you’re going to want to remember your experience at the most celebrated marathon of them all. Photos are great and all, but there’s nothing like wearing the iconic celebration jacket. Is it a flex? Sure, but it’s a deserved one for anyone who has completed the journey that ends with a right onto Hereford and a left onto Boylston.

Crossing the famed finish line

And while the jacket remains the go-to piece of apparel for most finishers, the entire collection expands to a full running kit. It even includes a bucket hat, because… well, we’re not sure why, but it does exist.

Speaking of the jacket, we’re loving the classic throwback look of the red, white, and blue, a nod to the kit worn by Adidas distance runner Grete Waltz, silver medalist in the 1984 women’s Olympic marathon. 

While all these pieces will be available at the expo, we’ve learned in the past that certain sizes can sell out, and honestly– it’s just less stress if you procure your items ahead of time. That’s why we put together a list of our favorite items from the 2024 Boston Marathon collection. This is a sampling of what’s available, for the full collection, you can head over to Running Warehouse and stock up on all the gear.

Just don’t wear that jacket before you cross the finish line. Unless you’re like us and enjoy curses upon you and your family for all of eternity.

Our Favorite Picks from the 2024 Boston Marathon Collection

The Icon

Boston Celebration Jacket ($120)

If there’s one thing to get, it’s this. We can tell you from experience that this is a soft and comfortable windbreaker with a perfect fit. It’s the same construction as the 2023 jacket, just in a throwback colorway that celebrates the 1984 Olympic kit worn by Adidas marathoner and silver medalist Grete Waltz. A zippered hand pocket and lower back pocket offer nice storage options.

Boston Marathon Short Tight ($65/$70)

On race day, keep the muscles loose but the shorts tight. These half tights are made from AEROREADY performance fabric and come with drop-in side stash pockets on both sides. We can tell you that this is key for gel storage while on the go. A reflective Boston Marathon logo lets people know exactly where you’ve been or where you’re going.

Boston Marathon Quarter Zip ($65)

You’re going to want to celebrate afterwards and we all know Boston can get cold in April. While the jacket is great, it’s always nice to have that cozy layer between. This quarter zip is made from a soft brush poly knit with four-way stretch. Thumbholes on the sleeve ends keep your hands warm and a stand-up collar protects the neck.
