Boston Marathon Fans Cheer on Zdeno Chara as He Finishes in Style

Former Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara decided to take on another challenge by running the Boston Marathon.

Running a marathon is something most people would never dream of doing, but Chara is not the average person.

Chara arrived in style, wearing a custom #3333 bib (Chara’s NHL number was 33).

Chara, who stands 6’9″, was easy to spot because he was so much taller than all of the other runners.

Chara finished the marathon in 3:38:23, a very fast pace of just over 5 minutes per kilometer for 42 kilometers.

Chara finished the race in style, crossing the finish line to the sound of the Bruins’ goal song.

Another major accomplishment for the man known as “Big Z.”

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
