RVRR’s own “Train”ing Run, at the marathon distance has been named a top 10 marathon in the Northeast by Healthline Media Inc. alongside big names such as the New York City Marathon and the Boston Marathon.
Healthline Media indicated that their editorial staff made their determinations for the list based on the “uniqueness and beauty of the marathon”. Ray Petit, one of the founders of the Train-ing Run, got in touch with Healthline Media when he heard the news to make sure that they knew it was a non-competitive event. Their response was “Non-competitive is ok. It’s about the run not the win.”. I don’t think there is anyone who has ever run the Train-ing Run who could possibly disagree with that sentiment.
Congratulations to Ray Petit for his years of work on this event, and thanks to all the volunteers who help make this a great success every year.
