Boston Marathon Race Director Dave McGillivray

Dave McGillivray is the Race Director of the Boston Marathon. Each year before the marathon he takes time out of his busy schedule to say a few words to the L St. Running Club. And he never disappoints.

McGillivray's energy is contagious; his passion for life is inspirational. Every time I've heard him speak at an L St. meeting I'd walk away with superb running information and a meaningful life lesson. Talk about get you pumped up to run? I'd walk out of the meeting and feel like running through a brick wall! Luckily my brain would remind me, "Relax, you're running the Boston Marathon in a few days."

Dave McGillivray embodies the spirit of the Boston Marathon.

As the race director, Dave McGillivray runs the Boston Marathon. And in the late hours on Marathon Day when most runners are tucked in their beds or enjoying a cold, frosty beer, McGillivray laces up his running shoes and runs the Boston Marathon. That's right. After working all day Dave makes the 26.2 mile journey from Hopkinton to Boston.
