Boilermaker Expo to Feature Marathoner and Author Dane Rauschenberg
Jun. 28, 2010
UTICA, NY (June 28, 2010)- The 2010 Boilermaker Road Race will feature record holding marathon runner and author, Dane Rauschenberg. Rauschenberg will be speaking at the Boilermaker Expo on Saturday, July 10, in the Runners Forum tent at 11:00 AM. Rauschenberg will also be signing copies of his book entitled "See Dane Run," an autobiographical account of his successful attempt in 2006 to be the only person in the world to run 52 consecutive weekly marathons in one calendar year.
Rauschenberg swam in high school, played rugby in college, and was a golden gloves boxer in law school. He committed to run the record 52 marathons at the age of 29, as a relative novice of the sport, having run only six previous marathons in his lifetime. Rauschenberg worked towards a fund-raising effort called "Fiddy2," which raised over $44,000 for the Mobile, Alabama chapter of L'Arche, an organization which benefits the developmentally disabled.
Rauschenberg completed and competed in all 52 races, with an average time of 3:21. His fastest time of 2:59 came in his 42nd marathon.
