We are ecstatic to announce that, as part of our partnership with the Bill Rodgers Theatre III Valentine’s 5k Road Race, we will get a visit from the legend himself! On Thursday, January 31st, Bill Rodgers will make an appearance at Marx Running in Acton, MA. Rodgers will be present from 5 PM – 7 PM to help promote his Valentine’s Day road race. He will be doing a general meet and greet, signing autographs, answering questions, and will have several copies of his book for sale. “We are honored to have such a respected running legend in our presence to meet the local running community and promote the Theatre III Road Race”, says Marx Running owner Mark Coddaire. Marx Running is inviting all members of the public to come down to 423C Great Road in Acton to mingle with one of the most well-known distance runners in US history. Rodgers is a 4-time winner of both the Boston and New York Marathons. At the 1979 Boston Marathon he set the American Record with a time of 2:09:27. His most remarkable streak came in 1978 when he won 27 out of the 30 road races he entered, including the Boston and New York Marathons. He was ranked #1 in the world in the Marathon during three separate years, is an Olympian and former World Record Holder. Rodgers also helped facilitate the huge running boom of the 1970s and 1980s. Please join us on January 31st at 5 PM to help welcome our special guest and meet a running legend!
