Run Boston

There's nothing quite like Marathon Monday in Boston--workers get the day off, people cheer on runners from front lawns and apartment windows, the Red Sox play an early game that ends just in time for fans to watch the top finishers, the city really comes together. Artist and runner Phil Thompson captures this electric energy in this hand drawn marathon route map, perfect for avid runners or those with their sights set on Boston's finish line.

Starting in Hopkinton, straight up Heartbreak Hill, and finishing in Boston's Copley Square, the illustrated route shows a lively snapshot of the day's events. A subtle nod to the 2013 tragedy stands out at the Boylston Street finish line with signs of remembrance, while the surrounding images show a city that comes together to celebrate sport, triumph, and the place they love. Designed and printed in Chicago, Illinois.

Inspired by a love of architecture and history, artist Phil Thompson creates illustrations of homes and buildings. He works out of a 1912 Craftsman style studio on Chicago’s storied Ravenswood corridor. The homes of his city inspired him to start capturing their “personalities” in pen and ink for their proud owners.
