Will Thomas '03 Takes Long (and Grueling) Way to Boston Marathon

Story posted April 20, 2009

Most of the runners in the April 20, 2009, Boston Marathon will have warmed up with a short run and some stretching. Not Will Thomas '03. He will have just biked to Hopkinton, Mass., from Portland, Maine, following a three-mile kayak trip from Peaks Island.

Thomas and his grueling adventure are the subject of an article in the April 18, 2009, edition of the Portland Press Herald.

Read the article.

Thomas and a friend, Seth Bradbury, are making the journey together. They planned stops in Portland and Portsmouth, N.H., that doubled as fundraising events for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine.

Thomas, an experienced triathlete, is the founder of Tri-Maine Productions, a Portland-based company that promotes sporting events.
