Longtime Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray’s wish finally came true on Friday night. Fenway Park hosted a marathon.
Billed as the first race of its kind to take place inside a ballpark, the 26.2-mile run consisted of 116 laps along the perimeter of the field. The competition was limited to just 50 runners, all of whom were required to raise $5,000 for the Red Sox Foundation. Proceeds will go toward improving health and promoting recreation for New England children.
American runner Michael Wardian was the first to cross the finish line, with an official time of 2:53.52. In January, the 43-year-old completed seven marathons in seven days across seven continents.
