Dave McGillivray On Tradition, Family and Giving at the Boston Marathon

Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray has a tradition of running the Boston Marathon course every year at night long after all the runners have crossed the finish line. This year will be his 30th time running the race at night, 45th overall. His 23-year-old son, Max, is also running the race for the first time this year, and together they’re running on behalf of the Martin Richard Foundation, a charitable foundation formed in memory of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy killed in the 2013 bombing of the race. So far, both Dave and Max have raised over $80,000 for the foundation. However, “it’s not about the amount of money, it’s more about the effort put in, to make a statement that we care and that we will never forget,” says Dave in this interview.
