Durden, who resided in Stone Mountain, GA at that time, now lives in Boulder, CO. He was a member of the 1980 USA Olympic Team as a marathoner.

TD Bank Reedy River Run is one of the event's Durden is participating in this year as part of a "nostalgia tour." He recently ran in Charleston's Cooper River Bridge Run 10K, where he had previously won many years ago.
