New Hampshire marathon caps quest to run in all 50 states

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) A 73-year-old Las Vegas man has fulfilled his quest to run marathons in all 50 states.

John Maultsby crossed the finish line on Sunday in a race in New Hampshire. It was his eighth marathon this year.

WMUR-TV ( ) reports that Maultsby began his endeavor at age 60.

He completed the Anthem Manchester City Marathon in 4 hours, 9 minutes, 15 seconds, capping his 13-year quest.

Maultsby says he knows there are runners who've reached that goal a whole lot quicker, but he doesn't know too many who started when they were in their 60s.


This story has been corrected to show that Maultsby's time was 4 hours, 9 minutes, 15 seconds, not 4 hours, 8 minutes, 15 seconds.
