HARTFORD, CT - Bates Distance Alumn Michael Danahy '00 competed in the ING Greater Hartford Half Marathon on October 11, 2008. Danahy, a four-time All American at Bates in Cross Country and Track, placed 18th overall in an extremely competitive race, featuring more than 3,000 competing runners. Danahy's time of 1:16:51 equals an average pace of 5:52 per mile, an impressive feat for the 29 year old Danahy, who also teaches chemistry at Bates. Danahy's effort is the latest in the recent rash of Bates Distance alumns racing well, following the efforts of Matt Dunlap in the full Maine Marathon, and Matt Biggart and Patrick Wales-Dinan in the Half-Marathon just weeks ago.
