Joe Buccino

Joe Buccino started running in 2007 in preparation for backpacking to his first summit attempt on Mount Whitney. He found that not only did he enjoy running, he was also competitive, usually finishing in the top 3 in his age group in most of his races. In 2009 he ran his first half marathon and has found that to be his favorite distance run.  In May 2014 Joe ran his first full marathon at Mountains 2 Beach in Ventura, and qualified for Boston with a 3:49. He ran the Boston Marathon in April 2015 in 3:45.  He is a member of the Inside Track Running Club in Ventura, CA. In 2015 Joe began pacing so that, as he puts it, ” I get to give others the chance to achieve personal goals. Getting to the finish line is always rewarding, but getting a PR in the process is icing on the cake!”
