Boston. Where Running Partnerships Thrive
Since 1986, the Boston Athletic Association has used sponsorships to help keep the Boston Marathon the most revered and respected race in the world. Thanks to principal sponsor John Hancock Financial, the Boston Marathon provides an $806,000 prize purse for which athletes compete every year. John Hancock also provides financial resources to oversee the John Hancock Elite Athlete Team, which brings many of the top runners from around the world to Hopkinton each Patriots’ Day. The company hosts the athletes for race week at the “John Hancock Elite Athlete Village” set up at the John Hancock Conference Center.
