Former Sidney High standout Jachob Wiedeburg placed second at the Pilgrim Pacer Marathon in Shawnee, KS on Sunday Nov. 17. His time qualified him to run in the Boston Marathon.

He'll have to wait until 2021 to compete, but former Sidney High track and cross-country standout Jachob Wiedeburg placed second in the Pilgrim Pacer Marathon on Shawnee Park, Kansas on Sunday Nov. 17, and his time of 2:52 qualified him for the Boston Marathon.

The upcoming 2020 Boston Marathon is already at capacity for entrees, so Wiedeburg will have to wait until April of 2021 to get his chance at competing in the biggest race outside of the Olympics. But with patience and endurance being the key attributes to a successful marathon runner, the wait will be well worth it for Wiedeburg.
