Helping Runners Overcome the Disappointment of Cancelled Events

Boston, Apr 1, 2020 ( - Hundreds of thousands of runners around the world have trained for months and maybe even years, for road races that have understandably been cancelled or postponed. 26.2 4U was created with a simple mission, to support the running community by helping runners achieve their dreams and goals from the safety of their own neighborhoods during these times of uncertainty.  

Leaning on his years of road race and event management experience, Tom Maglio founder of 26.2 4U shares how he came up with this very unique service offering. "Two weeks ago, my friend's son arrived home from studying abroad due to the Coronavirus. I am not sure if he was as disappointed about losing out on the college abroad experience as he was about not being able to run the marathon he was training for over there that had been cancelled. So last weekend I designed and produced his very own marathon.  He had a great run and crossed the finish line at 2:49:02. This got me thinking about how many other runners out there are experiencing the same disappointment.  The birth of 26.24U is all about not giving up on your dreams. It's about supporting and servicing runners within the safety of their neighbors. We believe our clients are the core of the running community. We bring custom-designed personal race day experiences right to the doorsteps of the most influential of runners.  As Americans stay closer and closer to home over the coming months, many brands will be looking for creative and unique ways to stay connected to their customers. We look forward to partnering with fitness and lifestyle brand as we take them along with us into the neighborhoods and onto the doorsteps of our clients with our unified message, you don't have to give up on your dream just because the race you have been training for was cancelled. Don't Give Up, Don't Ever Give Up"

Jun 3, 2020

BEIJING — A preliminary investigation into viral pneumonia illnesses sickening dozens of people in and around China has identified the possible cause as a new type of coronavirus, state media said Thursday.

Such viruses are common in people but more exotic versions from bats, camels and other animals have caused severe illness. The novel coronavirus...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jun 3, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Most of the rallies didn't pan out Sunday as scores of riot police took...

Springboks' 1st black captain gets his chance at history

Jun 3, 2020

TOKYO — It was the week after Siya Kolisi's fourth birthday when Nelson Mandela presented Springboks captain Francois Pienaar with the Webb Ellis Cup in a defining moment for rugby, and for South Africa. Kolisi was 16 when the Springboks won their second Rugby World Cup title. There was no television at his home, he recalls, so he had to go to a tavern to watch John Smit lift the trophy after beating England in the 2007 final in Paris. Twelve years on, the first black player appointed as Springboks captain gets a chance to etch his name in history...
