Yakima River Canyon Marathon - April 1, 2017
The Team Dolphin Boston Marathon Fund was established by the five children of Bob and Lenore Dolphin, co-directors of the Yakima River Canyon Marathon (YRCM), in honor of Bob’s 400th marathon/ultra run at the YRCM on March 31, 2007. A minimum amount of $400.00 is shared annually by a male and a female runner who have qualified for Boston at the previous year’s YRCM, and preference is given to those who have never run at Boston.
There is a link to the websites of the Marathon Maniacs, 100 Marathon Club North America, Hard Core Runners Club etc. to publicize this fund and the opportunity it presents for applicants and contributors.
Contributions from supporters are held in a bank savings account under the control of the treasurer of the Yakima River Canyon Marathon and the president of the Hard Core Runners Club. Members of the YRCM committee assist these two people in selecting the individuals who will receive the award. The checks are presented after the designated winners provide a copy of the confirmation of the race entry indicating registration and acceptance of the next Boston Marathon by the Boston Athletic Association.
Criteria for the committee to consider in making the selection:
