Salem grad Brenner Webster ran his first ever marathon, competing in the 2019 Missouri Cowbell Marathon. Webster was 1st overall running in a time of 2:45:03. He was 20 seconds faster than the 2nd place runner and almost 12 minutes faster than 3rd place. In his training, Webster had never ran over 18 miles, so a very impressive feat becomes even more impressive. Webster now qualifies as one of the thousands of runners that will run in the 2021 Boston Marathon.
