Monday is Patriot’s Day. That means, once again, a pack of Southborough runners are headed to Hopkinton. Twenty residents (8 women and 12 men) are running in the 2019 Boston Marathon.

It’s New England, so the forecast is hardly set in stone for an event that’s days away. But for the second year running, predicted rain may make a certain hill particularly heartbreaking.

(May the wind be at their back and the rain minimal!)

Here’s the complete list of who’s registered for the challenge. (For those raising funds, I included information with links to their blog stories and direct links to fundraising pages.)

Please join me in wishing the following residents the best on their 26.2-mile trek.

Thankfully the rain held off before and during the race! Around 2:30 after I finished there was torrential albeit brief rain in Boston. Hoping not too many residents got caught out in the rain
