80 marathons in 85 years

Below is an incredible portrayal of 85-year old Margaret Hagerty who completed her 80th marathon at the time this video was filmed. We at MinnEESI think that running 80 marathons is impressive at any age and are glad that Hagerty enjoyed the spotlight. This video was part of the First Annual International Film Festival on Aging.

  1. Having one under my belt, I used to consider myself a marathoner, but Margaret's story humbles me! It also reminds me how important the work of MinnEESI is. Here's to making sure all elders have the opportunity to do what keeps them healthy and happy as they age, whether it's running or otherwise. Hats off to Margaret!
