Desiree Linden was the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in 33 years, and to honor her, Wednesday will be Des Linden Day in Boston.


District 6 Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley will host a meet and greet with Desiree “Des” Linden in Boston City Hall (Curley Room, 5th Floor) from 11 am to noon.

Later at the weekly Boston City Council meeting at noon, O'Malley, himself and avid runner, will declare June 20, 2018, Des Linden Day in Boston.

Linden has completed the Boston Marathon six times, and won it this year in treacherous weather conditions, with a time of 2:38:55.
