The Quad Boston was developed in 2015 by The Herren Project's Ultra Ambassador, David Clark, who wanted to do something to bring awareness to the disease of addiction. An ultra-marathoner, he decided to run the Boston Marathon route four consecutive times with the 4th being the Official Boston Marathon. Why run again in 2017? In 2016 within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts there were 1,465 confirmed opiod-related overdose deaths with 514 more estimated. Leg one of the Quad Boston will be run to support those still struggling with addiction, leg 2 will be run to support families and loved ones of those struggling with addiction, leg 3 will run to honor those who have found recovery, and leg 4 will remember individuals lost to the disease of addiction and bring everyone home to the finish line, together as one.
