Boston Marathon Elevation Chart



As you can see from this chart, that damn course is hilly. It's advertised as 16 miles of downhill followed by 5 miles up, then 5 miles downhill to the finish. Reality is the first 16 is rolling hills and as you can see, there is quite a bit of uphill along the way down. The need to train on hilly terrain is definitely an understatement!
