Boston Marathon: Defining Moments with Dave McGillivray

Listen to our interview with Dave McGillivray, Race Director for the Boston Marathon. ​

Dave McGillivray is the Race Director of the BAA Boston Marathon and has directed many of the country’ most prestigious races such as the 2004 and 2008 US Women’s Olympic Marathon Trials, the TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K, the Mt. Washington Road Race, the Harvard Pilgrim 10K at Patriot Place, the Run for the Dream in Williamsburg, Va. and now the famous New Balance Falmouth Road Race on Cape Cod. Dave translates his extraordinary life journeys and athletic achievements into life lessons in a motivational presentation entitled “Defining Moments.”  

That 80-day trek in 1978 across the United States led McGillivray to a life of pushing himself both mentally and physically.  He addresses audiences with a motivational account about what’s possible if you believe in yourself and your own ability to do the seemingly insurmountable. Dave McGillivray has inspired thousands of people, of all ages and backgrounds, to be their best and to pursue their dreams.
