He is just going to take a longer route than usual.
Wolf will run a full marathon — all 26.2 miles — before reporting for work on Tuesday, May 5, as part of his training plan for the 124th Boston Marathon this September.
Wolf will be running in conjunction with “Giving Tuesday Now” — a global day of giving to raise funds for non-profit organizations.
The county attorney is running in support of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, a nationwide organization of police chiefs, sheriff, and prosecutors focused on promoting solutions that cut crime and prepare kids for productive lives.
Wolf’s entry was provided by John Hancock, the principal sponsor of the Boston Marathon, which donates over a thousand marathon entries. In exchange, runners pledge to raise money for select organizations.
“I’m excited to run the Boston Marathon in support of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids this fall, and Giving Tuesday Now is a great time for a training run,” Wolf said. “I’m asking friends and community members to pledge a few dollars per mile in support of our efforts to help steer kids away from crime.”

Traditionally held in April, this year’s edition of the Boston Athletic Association’s Boston Marathon will place on September 18.
