FRAMINGHAM –  Marathon legend Becca Pizzi of Belmont spoke to Team Framingham runners last night, March 27, in Framingham City Hall.

In 2016 , Pizzi was the first American woman to complete the World Marathon Challenge, a series of seven marathons on seven continents in seven consecutive days.

In 2018, Pizzi became the first woman to complete the World Marathon Challenge twice. She was the overall women’s winner and won six of the seven marathons in that event.

She also holds the record for fastest women in the Wold Marathon Challenge.

Pizzi has a goal of running a marathon in all 50 states.

Team Framingham Founder Michael Bower, who has run 26 Boston Marathons, invited Pizzi, who ran her first marathon at the age of 17, to speak to the Team Framingham runners with 3 weeks to go until the Boston Marathon.

Each Team Framingham runner has a fundraising goal of $5,000 for one of the 5 charities selected for 2023.

In the 9 years of Team Framingham, our team runners have raised more than $750,000 for deserving Framingham focused charities, said Team Framingham creator Michael Bower.

99% of our team runners have successfully completed the Boston Marathon with Team Framingham, said Bower.
