The Wellesley neighbors who live on the marathon route at Mile 15 have turned this spot into the best place to watch the Marathon.  Every year, they create an arch for the runners to pass through out of blue and yellow balloons to represent the official Marathon colors, and provide food and drinks for their neighbors who join them in the all-day festivities.  The party doesn't stop until the last runner makes their way through the arch.

This crew is known to pass out water and Jello shots to runners. Rain or shine, they put a lot of planning and care into making their Marathon party memorable for both neighbors and runners.  The location is ideal because it's just before Heartbreak Hill, so they're determined to make it fun. There will be lawn games and special activities for kids too.  This group is expecting over 150 people this year, and have opened up the invite not just to their Wellesley neighbors but the general public as well.

You can read more about it here. Marathon Monday is such a unique part of living in the Greater Boston area and I am looking forward to it!
