BOSTON (WWLP) – At the Boston Marathon, you have your first timers and your long-timers. For marathon staples Rick and Dick Hoyt, this is their last time.
Team Hoyt, Rick and Dick Hoyt have been such an important part of the Boston Marathon. Last year was supposed to be their final race, but the bombs went off and they weren’t able to finish.
The 118th Boston Marathon Team Hoyt finished their final marathon together.
“We knew right away last year after the bombings that we would come back and run for the people who got killed and injured. The crowds out there, you talk about Boston sports fans, unbelievable, we all said Boston was strong, but do you know how much stronger they were this year. Unbelievable,” said Dick Hoyt.
Never say never, Rick and Dick Hoyt may compete in some marathon’s down the line, possibly Dick by himself and Rick being pushed by other members of team Hoyt.
