UConn junior Kali Cika completed the 2013 Boston Marathon just half an hour before the bombs went off. This year she will run again.



UConn junior Kali Cika ’15 (CLAS) has been training around the Storrs campus for the 2014 Boston Marathon. Last year, on April 15, she finished the Marathon in 3:20, only a half an hour before the bombs placed near the finish line went off at 4:09. Thankfully, Cika came away unharmed, and she hopes this year’s race on April 21 will provide a memorable experience filled with pride and joy.
