UNC Marathon
The story behind the stipend Team inspired
by alum victory
By Nicole Booth
Staff Writer

UNC graduate and former college athlete,

Shalane Flanagan, made history last weekend,
being the first American woman to win the New
York City Marathon in 40 years. Her victory
inspired runners all over the world, especially the
UNC Marathon Team.
Brittany Hughes, a junior and officer of auxil-
iary on the UNC Marathon Team, has looked up
to Flanagan ever since she competed in the 2016
Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
I remember watching her run the Olympic
trials marathon, and I remember I really liked
the way that she ran that race even though she
had a tough race that day, Hughes said. I looked
her up and found out she went to UNC, and she
became my favorite runner.
Hughes said that marathon running hurts a
