BOSTON — The Inaugural Fenway Park Marathon managed by DMSE Sports raised more than $320,000 for the Red Sox Foundation on Friday, believed to be the first marathon ever held totally within a major league ballpark. Fifty athletes from 12 states, including Dave McGillivray, the director of the race who also directs the Boston Marathon, ran the 116 laps to raise money for the charity.
