The anchor of Geo News is the first journalist from Pakistan to run the Boston Marathon.
On Monday, Muhammad Junaid, a reporter for Geo News, ran the Boston Marathon. He was the first Pakistani journalist to do so.
Nearly 30,000 people from more than 100 countries took part in the 127th Boston Marathon.
“Time has come. Even though I’m running the Boston Marathon today, it’s not just for me. I’m running for all of you, and this wouldn’t be possible without my people, who are the best. Junaid wrote before the marathon, “Only one Junaid out of 30,000 runners today, thank you all, and see you at the finish line.”
The course of the famous Boston Marathon goes from Hopkinton to Boylston Street in Boston, Massachusetts. It is 26.2 miles long.
Eliud Kipchoge, the best marathoner in the world, ran in the Boston Marathon for the first time. There were also champions in the women’s race.
This year, after the Tokyo Marathon in March, the Boston Marathon was one of the six World Marathon Majors.
This year is also the 10th anniversary of the blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, which killed three people and hurt more than 281.
The runners also made traditional signs and memorials to honour the people who died in the blasts.
