The 118th Boston Marathon will be an emotional one.

With the annual event fast approaching, local director JJ Miller put together a short commercial to capture the spirit of the iconic race and how special this year’s run will be to the region.

“The marathon has always been something that brings the entire city together, whether you’re a runner or a spectator,” Miller told “We felt that by creating this video we could deter the negative things that surround last year’s marathon and could encourage people to rally around this one memorable event and bring this city together again.”
