‘One Boston Day’ will commemorate 10th Anniversary of Boston Marathon Bombings on Saturday, April 15

  Over 50 local residents will be participating as runners in the 127th Boston Marathon – the world’s largest official marathon – which will be run on Monday, April 17. From The Advocate readership area will be 23 entrants from Saugus, 15 from Malden, 12 from Revere and six from Everett. They will join the largest field of official entrants ever, over 30,000. A full list of the registered runners from The Advocate’s readership area appears below.

  The 127th Boston Marathon will also feature the 10th Anniversary of the infamous April 15, 2013, Boston Marathon Bombing, where six were killed and hundreds injured and/or maimed for life. The City of Boston and the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) will host two remembrance events – and more than a dozen volunteer activities will take place citywide – to mark the 10-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombings. The remembrance events honoring the victims, survivors and first responders of the 2013 Boston Marathon will take place on Saturday, April 15, beginning with an early morning private gathering and wreath laying at the memorial sites for the families who lost loved ones. Honor guards, including the Boston Fire Department, Boston Police Department, Boston Emergency Medical Services and Suffolk County Sheriff Department, will be present at the memorial sites throughout the day.

  At 2:30 p.m., the public is invited to a dedication of a new commemorative Boston Marathon finish line, the ringing of bells and the unveiling of a One Boston Day marker on Boylston Street along with Governor Maura Healey, Mayor Michelle Wu, B.A.A. leadership, members of the One Fund community, first responders, hospital leaders and local running groups.

People are encouraged by the city to take part in their own individual act of kindness by checking out the city’s 2023 One Boston Day Acts of Kindness Checklist, where ideas range from buying a cup of coffee for a stranger to donating blood.
