Support and participation in this year's Boston Marathon is at an all-time high. Organizers had to cap the field to 36k runners.
If you aren't one of the thousands of participants, an app can help you feel like you have a presence. Lagardere Unlimited has created a mobile app that connects runners from around the world to the Boston Marathon.
"Virtual runners" can log miles using the app the same day as the marathon, April 21. They can also connect and support other virtual runners.
The Boston Marathon World Run app is free to use, but anyone who downloads the app has an opportunity to donate $1 to benefit victims of last year's bombings. Find out more by clicking here.
