ROAD RACE MANAGEMENT

On April 12, three days before the 123rd running of the Boston Marathon on Monday, April 15, the BAA received a dire warning about the anticipated race day weather conditions. They were told "with real confidence" that race day would feature 38-41 degrees, heavy rain and wind out of the east from 20-30mph—conditions almost identical to 2018. The BAA sent out an email blast to participants, which produced groans around the world.

RUNNER’S WORLD

Dave McGillivray has been associated with the Boston Marathon for three quarters of his life, from an 18-year-old participant to his current position as race director. The latter is a role that, for the last 32 years, has required him to run the race hours after the winners, such as Lawrence Cherono and Worknesh Degefa, break the tape on Boylston Street.
