For the second year in a row, Boston will not hold its traditional April marathon.

Right now, this year's marathon is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 11. Last year, it was canceled for the first time in its 124-year history, which made the pandemic feel real in yet another new way. This year, what does a marathon-less Monday mean for Patriots' Day in Boston?

WBUR's Alex Ashlock, who's covered the marathon for more than 20 years, joins us to discuss.

This segment aired on April 19, 2021.
