Locals to Run in the 2022 Boston Marathon
By Grace Allen
On April 18, twelve Norfolk and Wrentham residents will join thousands of others and set off from Hopkinton to run 26.2 miles to Boston in the 126th Boston Marathon.
The marathon will be held on the traditional Patriot’s Day date for the first time since 2019. In 2020, because of the pandemic, the race was held virtually. In October of 2021, the race was held with a smaller field than usual, after being postponed from April.
This year’s marathon will include a field size of 30,000 participants and all athletes must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Runners get a bib by entering with a qualifying time or by running for a charity.
The following residents will be running on April 18:
Norfolk entrants: Allary Braitsch, 41; Brian Curran, 40; Katherine Day, 33; Brandon Doherty, 34; Brook Doire, 43; Jonathan Gavin, 37; Meghan Hamilton, 48; Taiese Hickman, 38; Kara Lightowler, 31; and Timothy Mcdonaugh, 43.
Wrentham entrants: Paula Verderber, 54, and Marc Waxman, 49.
