CHICAGO RUNNER SETS A NEW STATE OF ILLINOIS RECORD AT THE BOSTON MARATHON
A life long Chicagoan, Mark Buciak, member of Boston's Quarter Century Club set a new State of Illinois record on Monday by completing his 39th consecutive Boston Marathon. Mark has run more Boston Marathons than any other runner from the State of Illinois in the 122 year of the race. In the extreme weather conditions of cold temps, strong head winds and heavy rain Buciak's 2nd half marathon was only 63 seconds slower than his first and his last mile of the race was his fastest mile. He had a surgery for a complete hip replacement at Northwestern Hospital only 4 months. Buciak has a 2:30:25 PB in the 1983 Boston Marathon and has run the last 13 Bostons with a cow valve in his heart.
Coach Mark has completed 62 career marathons including 39 straight Boston Marathons. The only thing he loves more than running is sharing his passion and knowledge of running with other runners. Coach Mark has been training runners for over 25 years and is the only training program to have achieved a 100% completion rate for his marathoners (Chicago and Boston Marathons: 2007- 2017 ). He specializes in coaching charity runners. Helping them achieve their running and fund raising goals.
