Subject: Visually Impaired Athlete in need of a Guide for Marathon

There is a visually impaired athlete in need of a guide for the "Hall of Fame City Challenge" marathon in Canton, Ohio on September 8th, 2013.

The runner is looking to finish his first marathon, and needs a guide capable of completing the marathon in 4:30:00 or better in order to qualify for Boston 2014.

 

 

If you are interested in guiding a visually impaired athlete, and are available for this race, please contact Caroline Gaynor on Facebook.

I'd do it if it were closer to my town. I'm pretty sure the race has a pace group organization. Maybe touch base with someone from the pace groups.
