McQuaid’s cross-country team held its 39th annual 25-Hour Relay Friday, October 9 on Bob Bradley track. Typically held in August, the event serves as a bonding experience for the runners prior to the season. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, and for the safety of all involved, this year’s relay was shortened to 12 hours beginning at 9 a.m. and concluding at 9 p.m.
While the relay serves as a bonding experience for the runners, it also is a way for the team to raise money for a good cause. Runners have raised thousands of dollars over the years for several different organizations, families, and individuals. This year’s team elected to run the race in honor of the school’s director of communications, Sean Mullen, and his family. In February, Mullen was diagnosed with Chondrosarcoma of the spine, an extremely rare bone cancer.
