WBUR On Tap: Why I Run

bob squareThis event is now SOLD OUT. 

Join WBUR’s Morning Edition host Bob Oakes in the WBUR Living Room for the latest installment of our popular new event series, WBUR On Tap.

This month, Bob looks ahead to the Boston Marathon with special guests from Boston’s elite runner’s community. We’ll ask why marathoners take on the challenge, how it changes them, and whether this year’s race holds special meaning. Plus, we’re serving pasta and craft beer! After all, what’s a runners’ event without carbs?

We are excited to have brews from Banner Beer Company, a new venture from the former head brewer at Harpoon. We will be serving Run to Equinox, their new hoppy brown ale.

Our guests include Jack Fultz, a retired American long distance runner who won the 1976 Boston Marathon. He is the adviser to the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge. Also joining Bob is Dr. Grayson Kimball, a sports psychologist and author of “Grateful Running: Mental Training for the Long Distance Runner”. He is a six-time marathoner and sports psychology coach for the 2014 Marathon Coalition Boston Marathon Team.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. refreshments are served and the conversation runs from 6 to 7 p.m.
