Boston’s favorite father and son team, Dick and Rick Hoyt have competed in over 1100 athletic events since participating in their first Boston Marathon in 1981. Known for demonstrating the ability to persevere over disability, the world famous duo were set to make their final appearance at the 2013 race but were stopped just one mile from the finish line. They have since committed to finishing the 2014 Boston Marathon in honor of the victims and survivors of last year’s events.
