Keynoting this year’s event is 2x Olympian and American record holder RYAN HALL. Hall’s storied career includes setting the official U.S. Half Marathon record at the 2007 Aramco Houston Half Marathon (59:43); competing for Team USA in the Olympic marathon in Beijing (2008) and London (2012); and placing in the top four at the Boston Marathon for three straight years (2009-2011). His time of 2:04:53 at the 2011 Boston Marathon stands as the fastest marathon for an American (not an official record due to Boston’s point-to-point, net-elevation-loss course).
At RACE-MANIA, Hall will begin the day by pacing RACE-MANIA attendees in a shakeout run along the Charles River sponsored by the Westin Copley Plaza RunWESTIN program (details in the confirmation email when you register for the All Day Pass). His keynote, “Ryan Hall: Then and Now”, will be a Q&A moderated by Dave McGillivray, Boston Marathon Race Director, and Hall will also be available for a meet and greet with attendees at the USA Triathlon booth on the RACE-MANIA expo floor.
