Boston-Marathon-2016

The Boston Marathon is the best road race in the world. Every year, around Christmas, they release the colors of the official race jackets. This year’s official Boston Marathon jackets have a retro look with teal being the main color of the mens and womens models.

I was skeptical about the colors, but they have grown on me the more I have looked at pictures of the famous jacket. This year’s apparel and accessories were designed to celebrate the 120-year history of this great race.

Like every other race, the Boston Marathon apparel will be available at the race expo (race date: Monday, April 18, 2016). The expo provides runners and spectators the opportunity to pick up souvenirs of this amazing race. Every year, the most popular item is the Official Boston Marathon Jacket. Order today and get Free Shipping.

Below are pictures of the men’s and women’s official race jacket.

I have been fortunate to have run this incredible race in 2010 and 2013, which I will never forget. After the bombings in 2013, I have contemplated whether I wanted to run it again. As it turns out, I watched it on TV and it inspired me to sign up and run the 2016 Boston Marathon.

The Active Guy Verdict

Overall, the 2016 Boston Marathon apparel items are pretty cool. I am not a big fan of the official race jacket colors, but are way better than last years (purple/red). The running shirts and hats make up for the teal throwback colors.

In my post last year about the Boston Marathon apparel, I mentioned about my disappointment in the colors. I must say that the colors this year are better, but not great. I don’t envy the person who has to decide the race colors every year. Similar to last year, I think the Supernova jacket is a great alternative if you don’t want to spend $125 for the official race jacket.

Overall, I think the color and gear options for the 2016 Boston Marathon apparel and gear are ok. Not the best color, but better than last year.
