Tufts' involvement in the Boston Marathon entered its sixteenth year in 2018 and we are grateful to John Hancock for the opportunity to participate in this historic race. The 2018 Marathon was held on Patriots Day, Monday, April 16, 2018 and gifts support research at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy.
This tradition also includes team trainer Coach Don Megerle who offers his expertise and support for the team during training and on race day.
People who join the team participate in training runs and meet with both Coach Megerle in addition to dedicated members of the Tufts Athletics Department on the main Tufts campus for early morning training. This event has always been about having fun, raising money for the Friedman School, and encouraging everyone to be healthy active citizens
We look forward to giving you more details as the 2018 plans fall into place, and we'll see you at the race!
