Steve Boone said the program has been their way of paying back the support and encouragement they received as they ran marathons in each of the states and on most continents.
The couple met in 1997 at the Boston Marathon and were married eighteen months later. In 2001, they founded the 50 States Marathon Club which has grown to 4,400 members. Members share a common goal of completing a marathon in each of the fifty states. They still work every day and help organize non profit races in their spare time.
