Findlay Man To Run His 20th Boston Marathon Today

4/15/19 – 6:59 A.M.

A Findlay man is running his 20th Boston Marathon today. 62-year-old Chris Roberts and his son are in New England to run one of the most famous marathons in the world. Roberts says he’s run the race in all sorts of conditions, from cold weather with strong headwinds, to temperatures soaring into the 80s.

Roberts says the terror attack at the marathon in 2013 didn’t do anything to dampen the spirits of future marathons. He says that while security is tighter, crowds are bigger than ever. In 2014 Roberts ran the race in a shirt with an American flag on it and received “USA!” chants all along the course.
