For the second consecutive year, the Saturn roadster will take its
position at the starting line to lead 23,500 competitors on their
26.2-mile run through the historic Boston Marathon course.
Also, for the first time, the Boston Marathon will host the USA Women's Marathon Championship. Featuring many of the top female marathoners in the country, the Championship will be held on April 16, 2007, within the Elite Women's Start of the 111th Boston Marathon. A separate U.S.-only prize purse will be awarded to the top women in the Championship.
As the Official Vehicle of the 111th Boston Marathon, Saturn will support the race with pace and support vehicles that will handle everything from transporting race officials and staff to leading the marathon runners across the finish line.
Saturn will display along the course the Aura midsize sedan, recently named North American Car of the Year, as well as the Sky, Vue, Outlook, and the lowest-priced hybrid SUV on the market, the Vue Green Line hybrid.
