Swiftwick Spotlight: October 9, 2015

By October 9, 2015Spotlight

Here at Swiftwick, we have the privilege of helping athletes do what moves them. We have a lot of awesome athletes doing awesome things, and we want to share these accomplishments with the world!

Here are this week’s spotlighted athletes.

When 11-year-old Peyton Saltmarsh stood at the starting line of the Smuttynose Half Marathon last weekend, he had two things on his mind: wolves and 8-minute miles. Peyton has raised $2,900 for wolf conservation over the last five months. His passion for wolves and wildlife inspired him to train for the 13.1-mile race along the New Hampshire seacoast.

Not only did he complete the half marathon, he demolished the existing half marathon single age record by almost ten minutes! The crowd went wild as the youngest runner of the race crossed the finish line in 1:46:09.
