Thousands of runners from around the world participated in the 17th Annual San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society on Sunday, June 1, 2014. 91 year old runner, Harriette Thompson who recently finished radiation treatments for cancer completed her 15th marathon and broke the record for her age group. She is now the second oldest US marathon finisher ever, and her time of 7:07 for the 26.2 mile course is remarkable.  The incredibly inspiring marathon runner was joined by one of her biggest fans, Boston Marathon winner and San Diego native, Meb Keflezighi who posed for photos with the incredibly inspiring marathon runner.

Quite a few celebrities participated in the event including San Diego Chargers star Darrell Stuckey who pushed Ramona Johnston, wife of Chargers director of PR Bill Johnston during the marathon. Ramona suffers from Huntington’s Disease, a brain disorder that Stuckey has helped raise awareness about.

When it came to entertainment, “I’m the Man” and “Wake Me Up” singer Aloe Blacc greeted runners at the finish line with his hit songs.

And last but definitely not least, congratulations to marathoner Ben Bruce (age 31) of Flagstaff, Arizona who won the race with a time of: 2:23:50.
