Miles Trius, age 13, completed his first marathon, the Santa Rosa Marathon in Santa Rosa, CA, today.
Miles has been running in half marathons since he was 8 and wanted to try a full 26.2 marathon before high school. Miles will be an 8th grader this year at Our Lady of Guadalupe School in West Seattle. He has been inspired by his dad Ernesto, a retired Navy Chief. They trained for this marathon together.
He finished with a time of 4:21. He also placed 3rd for his age group (1-19). Thank you to The Santa Rosa Marathon for suppprting his running. Also, a thank you to his coach and mentor Daren Monroe of Our Lady of Guadalupe School for helping him the last 9 years become a great runner.
Miles is also currently raising money for his cross country/track team. He would like to buy new uniforms and scholarship money for future runners. Miles will be mentoring the younger runners this year during the Fall.
