Midway pharmacist Cris Bennett recently completed his first Boston Marathon in an impressive time of three hours and 19 minutes.  Competing in his thirteenth marathon, this was the first time Bennett had qualified for the prestigious Massachusetts race that was the scene of terrorism in 2013.

He began running seriously seven years ago, and cites fitness and health as the driving force behind his demanding running schedule which sees him pounding the pavement five days a week. Bennett also trains with the Peninsula Runners in

his home of White Rock/South Surrey every Saturday.

Bennett continues to compete in a variety of races, including half-marathons and 10 kilometre events, and looks forward to the opportunity to tackle other prestigious marathons such as those held in London and New York.

Ultimately, his personal goal is to complete the grueling 42-kilometre distance in under three hours.
