Episode 25: Jack Fultz ('76 Boston Marathon Champion)

Posted by Vince Varallo on

Fultz won the 1976 Boston Marathon in extreme heat with a time of 2:20:19. The temperature was 100 degrees one hour before the noon start time in Hopkinton. Over the 26.2-mile (42.2 km) course, runners were cooled by water sprayed by spectators using garden hoses. The race was know as "The Run for the Hoses". We also have a special guest interviewer, Ian Eckersley.
