Run for Boston with New Balance

Run for Boston Memorial Run with New Balance

Thursday, April 17 at 6:00 p.m.

On Monday, April 15, 2013 - bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. This not only deeply affected our nation, but gave a hard blow to the community of runners across the globe. Three days later, at a loss for what to do, we ran with tens of thousands of other runners across the nation to show our support for our fellow runners and friends affected by the tragedy.

On Thursday, April 17, 2014, one year after the tragedy and four days before the 2014 Boston Marathon, together with New Balance, we are hosting a second annual gathering for the runners of Montclair and surrounding communities to ban together and show their support for Boston.

Just like last year - please wear your blue or yellow for this three mile run.

Participation is FREE. Donations will be accepted to benefit The Boston One Fund, Inc. The Boston One Fund has been set up to support the victims and families of the 2013 Boston Marathon Tragedy. Donations are optional.

The Limited Edition Boston 890V4 will be available for purchase with proceeds going to the Boston One Fund, Inc.


New Balance will be here to support the runners.

New Balance Fresh Foam 980's and the 890's will be available for runners to wear test on the run. Additional special activities are in the making. Stay tuned as they develop.

ABOUT THE 980:  The Fresh Foam 980 is a neutral cushioning shoe, unlike anything you've ever stepped into before. It's a new technology that combines a more natural drop with a plush ride. Intelligent design just got smarter.

  • Awarded "Best Ride" in the Competitor Magazine Shoe Guide (March 2014)
  • Awarded "Best Neutral Running Shoe" by Running Network (March 2014)



Feel the science of soft with Fresh Foam, an innovative midsole created from a single piece of foam that provides a lower, more natural underfoot feel. Developed using specialized design software, this lightweight men's and women's running shoe also features breathable air mesh and simple no-sew overlays that wrap the foot in the right places. A full-ground-contact, blown rubber outsole complements the shoe's cushioning and delivers a smooth ride. The New Balance Fresh Foam 980:  incredibly soft yet stable.
