Welcome to Sneaker Report's Boston Marathon Week.

In honor of next Monday's big event, Sneaker Report dedicates this week to the world's oldest annual marathon and the best-known racing event on the planet, the Boston Marathon. Since the first run back in 1897, New England's most popular running event is also the world's largest marathon, attracting more that 500,000 spectators and over 25,000 runners last year. That's a lot of running shoes.

Expect practical tips from the pros, a look back at the most amazing Boston themed running shoes, and plenty of sneakers to keep you inspired 'til race day, whether you're tapering off this week or watching from the sidelines.
