Roddey Dowd to Run 2021 Boston Marathon after raising $14,680 in his 2020 Marathon effort for the Hopkinton Public Library!


My wife, Spencer, and I are from Charlotte NC. In 2019-2020, we lived in Cambridge while Spencer completed her Master’s in Education. We experienced everything we could in New England that year, including the Cambridge Half Marathon. The race opened my eyes to the fantastic running culture in the Boston area and inspired me to continue running. The more I learned about Patriot’s Day and the Boston Marathon, I knew it was a challenge I had to tackle. I trained and raised nearly $15,000 for the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation to run Boston in 2020. Unfortunately, the pandemic prevented the race from running, but I am so excited to keep the Patriot’s Day traditions alive and take the starting line at the first ever October edition of the Boston Marathon!
