Former marathon world record holder Steve Jones will be appearing at The Greater Boston Running Company, 1844 Massachusetts Ave., Lexington, Mass. on April 16 at 7 p.m.
Steve will answer questions and discuss matters relating to the marathon, specifically Boston. Jones was runner-up in Boston in 1987. In 1984, he ran his first competitive marathon in Chicago, winning with a time of 2:08:05 and breaking the world record, formerly belonging to his training partner, Australian Rob de Castella. Jones won the London Marathon in 1985 and achieved his career best marathon time of 2:07:13 upon winning the Chicago Marathon in 1985. This time remains the quickest by any British runner.
Jones is a career Reebok athlete, and he will be raffling off some of the latest Reebok shoes at the store and signing posters. Refreshments will be served. This is an opportunity to ask questions of a marathon legend.
