Kudos to the Ocean Community YMCA for organizing and staging the 38th annual Tarzan Brown Mystic River Run. Nearly 800 runners took part in the race that made its way through the community. That is a lot of runners and a long history of doing something right.
We should not forget that the 5.5 mile run along the river is named in remembrance of Tarzan Brown, a Narragansett Indian famous for his running prowess; he won the Boston Marathon twice and competed in the 1936 summer Olympics in Berlin. He died in 1975.
It is also heartwarming that 94-year-old Ethel Brown, Tarzan’s wife, came to the race. She has been there almost every year since it started. We wish her well.
Also in attendance were Tarzan’s granddaughters and great grandson.
The race is a wonderful way to honor Tarzan’s memory and a great event for the town. That almost 800 people took part is a testament to that legacy.
