Boston Marathon 2016 - MassBike's Running to Ride Team!

Welcome aboard Jenn Blazejewski of Cambridge and Rob Larsen of Roslindale!

We’re thrilled to announce that Jenn Blazejewski and Rob Larsen will be running Boston 2016 on behalf of MassBike as part of our Running to Ride Team, thanks to the John Hancock Non-Profit Program. With a collective fundraising goal of $20,000 we know that with your help,  Jenn and Rob can meet this goal prior to the big day and conquering the 26.2 miles to Boylston Street.

Jenn, having completed countless marathons, including Boston, is gearing up for April! As an active member of the MassBike board, she lends her marketing expertise and bicycling passion to the organization. Jenn became truly invested in cycling advocacy following her involvement in MassBike board member Tim Johnson’s Ride on Washington. At the time, Jenn was VP of Marketing for Boloco and debuted the Boloco trailer, sending it on its maiden voyage feeding hungry bike riders many, many burritos over the course of the five day trek. This adventure sparked her understanding and passion for bicycle advocacy. She currently works at Digitas as the VP of Digital Strategy.

Rob, a cyclist and MassBike member, is a seasoned half marathoner. He is ready to take on Boston on behalf of MassBike! Rob is an avid bike commuter who believes that bikes are a vital part of the future of the modern city. He has been a Boston marathon spectator for 35 years and has a special love for the race and the city, being a native to the area. He has a great understanding of the work that needs to be done to elevate Massachusetts as one of the best states for bicycling in the country and aligns himself with the MassBike mission.
