An intrepid group of runners endured brutal heat Sunday to secure ten more spots in April 2017’s Boston Marathon. Joining Kat Ahokas, Doug Neudorf, and Kirsten Jewell(who all qualified earlier this year) will be Troy Cox, Chris Watson, Mark Sinnige, Lowell Greib, Helen Dempster, Jen Nicholson, Roger Penney, Tony Marra, Dave Johnstone and Rebecca Francis. That’s 13 runners in a club of 60 runners with several other runners planning summer attempts at a Boston qualifying time. In addition to these fantastic results, MARs members kicked it old school in both the half marathon and 5 and 10K.
