Brian Rodriguez

Brian, who is from Chicago, IL, is running in honor of his father-in-law Mike Cobb who passed away in July 2020 after a 9-year battle with sarcoma. “He had 5 surgeries, 2 rounds of radiation and seemingly endless chemotherapy,” says Brian. “He was an incredible father and helped me so much along my journey.”

Brian has run 3 previous marathons, 1 ultra-marathon and 3 half marathons. A firefighter by trade, he loves to travel with his family and is a huge dog lover. His dog Rizzo has helped him with his marathon training. Supporters at the marathon will include his wife Claire, son Emmit and his mother Sharon. Go Brian!
