EJ Scott Receives Visionary Award at Los Angeles AllState Marathon

Yesterday morning EJ Scott ran a very short race, only 5 miles. That’s easy for EJ because he already ran 12 full marathons in 2012. and blindfolded. The 5k run took place in Playa Del Rey, CA at the Allstate Los Angeles Marathon event. ¬†He was supposed to run alongside his girlfriend, True Blood’s Deborah Ann Woll, as is guide. ¬†Unfortunately, Deborah hurt her ankle and wasn’t able to run, so EJ ran with another guide and Deb stood at the sidelines cheering him on.

After the race, EJ received the first ever US Road Sports and Entertainment Group Visionary award given at this annual race in recognition of the tremendous effort he made this past year for having run 12 Marathons in 2012 and raising over $150,000 for his charity Choroideremia.

    Has anyone ever confused you for UFC fighter Brian Stann? You guys look like you could be brothers. Saw you on Probst’s show and was inspired by your story. Hope your efforts to preserve your vision pay off in the long run. If I had a face as lovely as Deborah’s next to me, I know I’d want to be able to look upon her for the rest of my days. All the very best to you both. Keep fighting!
