Columbus Day weekend is a big weekend for marathons and Zac Efron’s brother, Dylan, was one of the many people who took on the daunting 26.2 mile challenge.
Dylan took on the Chicago marathon yesterday, which is a qualifying event for the Boston marathon in April. Apparently, he is quite the athlete seeing as this was the first marathon he’s run and he qualified for Boston!
In order to qualify, specifically for men 18-35, one must run a marathon in 3:05:00 or under. To put that into perspective that’s averaging about 7-minute miles for the entirety of the race and that’s no easy feat!
It seems that Dylan is quite the sportsman. He may be new to marathons, but it look like he’s competed in an Ironman before! Maybe we’ll be lucky enough to have Zac Efron in the crowd to cheer on his brother when he runs!
