The Boston Marathon takes place on the third Monday of April each year in celebration of Patriots’ Day. Whether you’re attending the 2016 Boston Marathon as a participant or a spectator, one of the many charter jet benefits is that you will arrive well rested and ready to enjoy the festivities.
About the Boston Marathon
Since the original running of the Boston Marathon in 1897, the event has been managed by the Boston Athletic Association. The first race consisted of 18 participants. Today, the race attracts approximately 30,000 participants each year and nearly 500,000 spectators. The event takes place on Monday, April 18, 2016 regardless of weather and despite its varied terrain.
There are several waves to the race which accommodates mobility impaired and wheelchair bound races in early waves. Mobility impaired participants begin the race at 8:50 a.m. with the wheelchair division beginning at 9:17 a.m.
Elite women begin the race at 9:32 a.m. Elite men begin the race at 10:00 a.m. Other waves begin at 10:25, 11:00, and 11:25 a.m. The waves help to ease the congestion of the race. The earlier start allows runners to take advantage of cooler weather for the run and allows roads to reopen earlier – easing traffic congestion throughout the area.
The course itself is not exactly straight and narrow. It follows 26 miles of winding roads into the city streets of Boston with the finished line located at Copley Square. In addition to being windy, the course is also hilly, making it one of the more difficult marathon courses.
Heartbreak Hill is one of the most difficult obstacles for Marathon runners to overcome on the Boston course. Not for the incline or rise of the hill itself, but the combination of the hill at the specific point in the course it happens to fall.
Winning the Boston Marathon is, for many, the ultimate goal. Finishing, though, is a worthy accomplishment for all participants. After you have run the course, a luxurious return trip in a private charter jet might be just the way to soothe those tired muscles.
Benefits of Private Jet Charters after Running the Boston Marathon
For those who have run the marathon, private jet charters represent a wide range of benefits. First, there is privacy. Here you can celebrate with friends, family, or whomever you’ve invited to fly with you. Or, you can simply go to sleep for the entirety of your return trip home.
You do not have to wait in long lines at the airport or talk to chatty strangers seated next to you. You will be with friends and family who will understand if you want to go to sleep after such a grueling event.
The other major benefit of flying via private jet charters is that you can land at more airports in the area than flying commercial airlines allows. This means you can land and depart from locations closer to your hotel or the starting point for the race.
These are a few airport options available to private jets.
- Logan International Airport (BOS)
- Worcester Regional Airport (ORH)
- Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT)
- F. Green Airport (PVD)
- Beverly Municipal Airport (BVY)
- Minute Man Airfield (MMN)
- Lawrence Municipal Airport (LWM)
Despite the fact that T.F. Green Airport is located in Rhode Island, it is typically viewed as a spillover airport for Logan International and accommodates many flights each day.
