From his extraordinary 1978 run across the U.S. to benefit the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to serving as technical director then race director of the BAA Boston Marathon since the 1980s, Dave McGillivray has helped organize more than 900 mass participatory events since founding DMSE Sports in 1981, while raising millions for worthy causes close to his heart.

In this episode, we talked about:

  • The time in 1978 when he ran 3,452 miles in 80 days from Medford, OR to Medford, MA--his hometown. 
  • How runners of all experience levels can participate in the virtual Medford2Medford run.
  • How he got started raising funds for charities as a runner.
  • The heart incident that took place 6 months before the 2019 Boston Marathon
  • And more!
