Bill Rodgers visits RunLites at the John Hancock Sport & Fitness Expo
RunLites' President and CEO, Mary Tiffin, had a terrific time with four-time Boston Marathon winner, Bill Rodgers, at the RunLites booth at the John Hancock Sport & Fitness Expo during the Boston Marathon.
Rodgers is an American runner and former American record holder in the marathon who is best known for his victories in the Boston Marathon and the New York City Marathon in the late 1970s.
He won both races four times each between 1975 and 1980, twice breaking the American record at Boston with a time of 2:09:55 in 1975 and a 2:09:27 in 1979. In 1977 he won the Fukuoka Marathon, making him the only runner ever to hold the championship of all three major marathons at the same time. He made the 1976 U.S. Olympic team and raced the marathon at the Montreal Olympics in 1976, finishing 40th. For more information on Rodgers, you can visit the Bill Rodgers Running Center website.
