Hopkinton Little League is proud to announce that we will have an offical runner in the 2019 Boston Marathon, Mike DelConte from Franklin, MA!
I live in Medway, MA with my wife Amanda and 5 year olds twins, Anthony and Sloane. I work at the FW Webb Company as the Director of Sales. I graduated in 2002 from The University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a degree in Business Marketing and later went on to get my MBA in International Management & Marketing at UMASS, Boston (2009). My running career is relatively short so far. I have actually done a lot more triathlons than road races. My first organized road race that I ever ran was the NYC marathon in 2013, since then I’ve run two others. I ran the Newport, RI marathon in 2016 and the Burlington, VT Marathon in 2017. I’ve always enjoyed outdoor activities and sports. I like to ski, hike, run, bike, etc. I’ve played Rugby for 16 years including 4 at UMASS Amherst.
The reason that I am doing this is that I played little league baseball growing up as a kid in Stoughton, MA. Playing baseball as a kid are some of my fondest memories. I think it is important to fundraise and give back to the community whenever possible. When I heard there was an opportunity to help out Hopkinton Little League and run the Boston Marathon, I said “sign me up” I’m in!
