Christopher Patterson started running in high school and continued running cross-country and track for Nazareth College, a Division III school, in Rochester, NY. Since graduating in 2007, he has continued his love of running which culminated in him running his first marathon in the fall of 2010 (Wineglass in Corning, NY). Since then, he has run 40 road marathons (and counting), qualifying for and running Boston from 2011-2017, with a personal best of 2:51 in 2016.

In 2013, after helping pace a friend in a marathon, he found he received as much satisfaction out of helping others achieve their goals as he did in achieving his own. Chris has been a pace group leader for many marathons and half-marathons around the United States, especially in the Northeast USA.
