Imagine running a marathon inside Fenway Park? That’s 114 laps around the warning track. On Sept. 15, the Fenway Park Marathon will be the first marathon in the country to be staged completely inside a major league ballpark.
Over its 105-year history, Fenway Park has seen a bevy of sporting events other than baseball take place in the shadow of the Green Monster. Hockey and football games, soccer and Irish hurling matches, even a skiing and snowboarding event have been held at the park.
