Yesterday was a big day for Boston Marathon news. Here’s a quick recap:

Boston runs on...Bank of America

The Charlotte-based bank will be the new presenting partner of the Boston Marathon, beginning in 2024. The 10-year deal will rename the historic event to the “Boston Marathon presented by Bank of America.”

John Hancock has been the primary race sponsor for 38 years, but the insurance company decided not to renew its contract with the BAA or the Red Sox.

Remembering April 15, 2013

Mayor Wu and the BAA announced two remembrance events on the 10-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedy.

Saturday morning, there will be a private gathering and wreath laying at memorial sites for the families who lost loved ones. Later that afternoon, a new commemorative finish line will be dedicated + a One Boston Day marker will be unveiled on Boylston Street.
