    1906 Boston Marathon Medal
    1906 Boston Marathon Association Finish Medal
    • The Boston BAA first ran in 1897 with only 15 runners and 10 finishers.
    • In 1906, the 10th year held, there were 86 starters.
    • Records do not indicate how many finished the race, but only those who did would have received the medals.
    • The winner of the 1906 race was Timothy Ford and at 18 years of age is the youngest ever to win the Boston marathon.
    • Medals from 1897 through 1907 are very rare antique and few have survived.
    • The medal is in remarkable condition and attractively engraved on back with Marathon Race Apr 19 1906.
