Team Member Bio: Greg Ward

Greg Ward
Age: 37
Location: West Boylston, MA

I have been running since high school where I was 13th and 9th in the All-State meet my Junior and Senior years of Cross Country. I was on the Boston Globe All-Scholastic team.
In college, I was a 6-time letter winner in XC and Track at Division I, Marquette University. I was All-Conference in XC in my Senior year.

After college, I ran a 2:36 Grandma’s Marathon in my debut, and the following year ran 2:38 in Boston. I trained off and on for a number of years and returned to competitive racing in 2003. I have since finished in the top-100 at the Boston Marathon, and in 2006, set PRs from 5k to the marathon. I won 8 road races in 2005. I also finished 4th, in my first attempt at an ultra – the Jay Mountain Marathon. After 3 years of moderate mileage, combined with cross-training, I have begun running significantly more mileage to continue setting PRs in every distance in 2006.

Championships, awards, major races, etc.
