Ash finishes in top 150 at Boston Marathon


Alan Ash of Atmore finished among the top 150 finishers in the world, during Monday’s running of the 118th Boston Marathon.

Ash ended the race with a time of 2 hours, 33 minutes, 54 seconds, finishing in 148th place overall. There were approximately 36,000 runners in the marathon.

Ash, 22, ran cross country at Vanderbilt and is currently a teacher at Jefferson Davis High School in Montgomery. Although he has only been running marathons for less than a year, he finished with the top Boston Marathon time for any runner from Alabama.

Ash’s dad, Allen Sr., taught school at Brewton Middle School and also has coached track and cross country at T.R. Miller.
