North Attleboro’s Noah Barney takes on Boston — and 5 other world marathons

Must Read

NORTH ATTLEBORO — Thousands of runners will descend on the town of Hopkinton Monday to take part in the 128th edition of the world’s oldest continuously run marathon, the Boston Marathon. Every athlete who participates in this race, or any race for that matter, typically has goals in mind: participating, raising money for worthy causes, achieving a personal-best or a set finishing time, or just finishing.

For North Attleboro’s Noah Barney, who turned 24 on Sunday, he has goals for the Hopkinton-to-Boston course, but they are more big-picture: survive (healthy) and advance. Because Barney has bigger fish to fry than just taking part in and finishing Boston: he is hoping to take part in and finish six of the world’s biggest and most prestigious marathons, and Boston is step four of six.
