KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A 74-year-old former Anderson County teacher crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, finishing the 26.2-mile race as 11th in his age group.

John Byrd’s average mile was 10:24.

Donations inspired by the retired teacher’s Boston Marathon participation are being given directly to the Education Foundation for Clinton City & Anderson County Schools. The foundation shared its support of Byrd on Twitter, and through an online interview.

The men’s champion of the Boston Marathon Evans Chebet completed the race in 2:06:51.

Some other members of Knoxville Endurance, a runner’s club that Boyd belongs to, checked a box on their bucket list today by completing the Boston Marathon as well. Check out a photo of the group in Boston.
