Not quite up for tackling the big 26.2? Chef Michael Scelfo's got another race that might be more your speed - Alden & Harlow's third annual Burger Marathon featuring five versions of the restaurant's secret burger, as interpreted by a different member of the team. In addition to options like Lou's Little Lamb Burger and Diego’s East Boston, there'll be a limited menu of small plates and specialty cocktails from Bar Director Seth Freidus and Co. If running isn't your thing (but eating hamburgers is), this is the marathon for you.
