2020 Fort Wayne Running Club Banquet

The 2020 Fort Wayne Running Club Annual Meeting and Banquet will take place Sunday January 26th at the Parkview Mirro Center. Our 2020 Keynote Speaker will be marathoner, prescription drug abuse survivor, fisherman, author, and motivational speaker Dick Beardsley.
Dick is referred to as a running legend in the United States and is best known for his incredible race in the 1982 Boston Marathon. That race, on a very hot day, was dubbed the "Duel in the Sun" as he battled world record holder Alberto Salazar down to the finish line. Both broke the American record: Salazar won in a record time of 2:08:51, Beardsley’s time was 2:08:53, finishing 1.6 seconds later, placing second. He was at the height of his professional running career.
