History

Tim Moley is a runner from Long Island New York.  In 2017 he tore his meniscus while training for the Boston Marathon.  However, that didn't stop him!  He ran the Boston Marathon that year on crutches.  And in typical Moley fashion, just before the finish line he threw away his crutches, dropped down, and did 10 push-ups on the finish line. 

If that wasn't enough in March of 2018, Moley had full knee replacement surgery and was told his running career was over.  Moley wasn't having it.  He set a goal to run the Erie marathon and said he was going to BQ.  Well, to the surprise of all the medical experts, that's exactly what he did.  Only 6 months after surgery he ran a 3:33:57, good enough for a 6:03 BQ and securing his spot in the 2019 marathon.

The Moley Mile was born days after his Erie performance when the Boston Buddies dedicated their training runs to him and we made a goal to make our last mile our fasted.  Coining the term 'Moley Mile'.  

Everyone can now join in the fun and run the first annual Moley Mile as a replacement for the Boston Marathon this year.  Everyone that signs up will get the first official Moley Mile medal!  

Join the world on this historic weekend and get out there run your ass off.  Don't let your Boston Marathon training go to waste!  Keep training.  Post your Garmin or Strava on the Boston Buddies event page!  And whatever you do, save something for that last mile!
