Meet HGYL's 2024 Boston Marathon Runner - Nick Brown!

Hi everyone, meet Nick! 👋🏻 👟

Nick will be running this year’s Boston Marathon on behalf of Hopkinton Girls Youth Lacrosse. He and his family are part of the HGYL community as his oldest, Kaleigh, just turned 11 and is about to start her fourth year of lacrosse as a 5th-grader.

For the last 10 years, when he’s not out in the yard with his two kids practicing lacrosse, soccer, baseball, basketball, skiing, tennis, or golf Nick’s been out running the streets and trails of Hopkinton. In fact, he’s run at least one half marathon every year for the last 10 Years! And, last year he completed his first full marathon with the running of 127th Boston Marathon which he ran on behalf of the Hopkinton Public Library Foundation. In running Boston last year he checked off a long-term bucket list item, but never did he imagine he’d be gearing up to run his second consecutive this year!

As a life-long athlete, “I believe that youth sports fundamentally shapes our children today and influences who they will be as adults tomorrow. So, being able to run on behalf of this incredible youth sports program, Hopkinton Girls Youth Lacrosse, is an incredible honor! I’m looking forward to the next few months leading up to April!”
