April 16, 2018 -- The 122nd Boston Marathon takes place, with over 30,000 runners expected to participate. Reigning champions Geoffrey Kirui and Edna Kiplagat will lead the men’s and women’s fields respectively in this year’s edition of the world’s oldest annual marathon.

Boston is the second World Marathon Major of 2018, after Tokyo in February, where Kenya’s Dickson Chumba and Birhane Dibaba of Ethiopia won the men’s and women’s races.

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
