Official Fuel Sponsor
CITGO is the official fuel sponsor of the Boston Marathon. Since 1965, CITGO has had an iconic presence along the Boston Marathon race route, with the signature CITGO sign in Kenmore Square letting runners know they are one mile from the finish of the Boston Marathon.
CITGO will have athletes fueled with inspiration and ready to race the Boston Marathon beginning with their first steps in Hopkinton. After departing the Athletes’ Village, all participants will pass through the “Fueling Good Runway, presented by CITGO”. A CITGO cheer zone will also be located at mile 25.2 beneath the iconic CITGO sign landmark, encouraging runners as they take their final steps towards the Boylston Street finish line. In addition, CITGO is the presenting sponsor of a digital campaign titled “The Road to Boston,” providing year-long event information to participants of the Boston Marathon.
