Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, today announced that it is the official technology consulting partner of the Boston Athletic Association and the 2013 Boston Marathon to be held on Monday, April 15, 2013.

The partnership will kick off at the three day John Hancock Sports and Fitness Expo held at the John B. Hynes Convention Center. TCS will also be sponsoring four information kiosks and tables frequented by marathon runners and spectators throughout the race weekend.

“Marathon runners are inherently dedicated, well-prepared, and persistent; these are traits that I encourage our employees to emulate each and every day,” said N. Chandrasekaran, CEO and MD, TCS. “We are proud to say that TCS will field 20 runners, including TCS employees and clients, in this year’s race.”

TCS is also the exclusive information technology sponsor of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon (October 13, 2013) and the official IT consulting sponsor of the ING New York Marathon (November 3, 2013). This is the fourth year that TCS will participate in all three major U.S. marathons.

“We are pleased to be sponsoring the Boston Marathon for another year and providing race updates to spectators at our various information stations,” said Surya Kant, President of TCS’ North America, UK and Europe business. “In addition, the marathon is our opportunity to give back to the community through our partnership with the American Heart Association.”
