19 April 2016

Congratulations to Team RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland) who, once again, competed and successfully completed yesterday's 120th Boston Marathon. This is the 17th year in which RCSI students have competed in the event which is held annually on Patriots Day in Boston.

Pictured are Team RCSI: (back row l-r) Mohammad Alhazmi, Nuala Murphy, Ranjit Banwait, Stephanie Doyle, Mark Heneghan, (front row l-r) Ruth Carey, Cassie MacRae, Ruadhan O'Laoi, Nathalie McEvoy and Eoin Murphy.
The Boston Marathon is the oldest road race and RCSI's involvement is facilitated by Dr John V Coyle (RCSI Class of '62), member of the Boston Athletic Association (BAA) and recipient of the 2002 RCSI Distinguished Graduate Award.  
A special thanks goes to Dr Coyle who has made RCSI participation in this prestigious event possible.
