Steve Mangan joined NE Distance in the Fall of 2015 already boasting a personal best of 3:58 in the mile. Steve was a teammate with Henry Sterling at Dartmouth College and has also run post-collegiately with the Boston Athletic Association. However, Steve’s running prowess isn’t limited to mid-distance: he laced up his cross country spikes to help the NE Distance team win the 2015 Mayor’s Cup at Boston’s historic Franklin Park. His 14th place finish in 24:34 on the 8-kilometer course helped NE Distance total only 35 points, easily outpacing second place Speed River New Balance TFC (64 points).
Steve firmly believes in the positive impact that professional athletes can have not only doing most of their training around their community, but also reaching out to community members and getting them active with group runs, clinics, and youth events.
