The New Bedford Half Marathon Committee has received the exciting news that Team Hoyt (The Father & Son duo of Dick and Rick Hoyt) are going to be running in our race this year.
This will be one of their last training races prior to the Boston Marathon in April. A truly empowering story, the Hoyt’s have now competed in over 65 Marathons and multiple Ironman Triathlons.
This year will be their 27th Boston Marathon and if the timing is correct, the Boston race will be their 1,000th race together.
We here on the New Bedford Half Marathon Committee are proud to have Team Hoyt in our field and we are lucky to be a part of this historic year and their tremendous accomplishment!
