A former SJC Brooklyn Bear tore through the 2019 NYC Marathon finish line, adding to his impressive record of athletic achievements.
T.J. Byrnes, a 2006 graduate, ran in the Nov. 3 marathon with the New York Police Department team, finishing in 2:20:53. He ran the 26.2-mile race at a pace of just over six minutes per mile, quick enough to place 232rd out of 53,509 official finishers.
Bynes, 36, built his athletic prowess while studying business administration at St. Joseph’s. He continues to hold the men’s team basketball record for steals per game and ranks second in three-pointers made. He also ran cross country at St. Joseph’s.
Outstanding time by the 🐻alumnus running in his first #tcsnycmarathon!
