Dan McDonough to Run the 2024 Boston Marathon for Our Library!

HPLF is thrilled to announce that Dan McDonough will run his first marathon at the 2024 Boston Marathon in support of Hopkinton Public Library!


Dan's Story

It is with great excitement that I have committed to competing in the 2024 Boston Marathon in support of Hopkinton Public Library. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to run for an amazing cause such as this Library that sits on the starting line of the Boston Marathon.  After 30+ years of recreational and competitive running, this will be my first attempt at a full marathon.

With many things in life, especially education, the more we prepare, the more we invest ourselves and our time, the better the outcome we can expect. Supporting a local public library is an incredible way to dedicate the time and energy required to prepare for and execute a 26.2 mile race. I am very much looking forward to running with the HPLF team in Boston this year.
