Zac Efron Shares Sweet Message for Brother Dylan After He Completes Boston Marathon


The 'Baywatch' star didn't let a little freezing rain stop him from supporting his little brother.

Zac Efron knows that family comes first.

The Greatest Showman star stepped out to support his 26-year-old brother, Dylan, on Monday at the Boston Marathon where the two embraced in a hug at the finish line. 

“Dylan! What’s up buddy?” Zac can be heard yelling while taking video footage of his sibling following the impressive 26.2-mile run. “Boston Marathon! Give your brother a hug!”

The freezing rain didn't stop the 30-year-old actor, who was all smiles while dressed in a black hooded rain jacket, from being there for his brother. He shared the clip on Instagram, alongside an inspiring message for his younger sibling.  

“What’s the point of all the finish lines we cross in life if there’s no one there to celebrate with?” Zac remarked. "This used to get me down when I felt alone -- there’s many reasons BTW -- Ima be at every [finish line] with you from here until forever, Brother. Congrats @dylanefron #marathon #bostonstrong #bostonmarathon #letsgo"

The Baywatch star also shared celebratory footage on his Instagram stories, where he can be heard excitedly shouting as Dylan finishes the race.


Dylan was truly feeling the love to have his brother waiting at the finish line, as he posted a snap of his own from the 18-mile mark, shortly before running up Heartbreak Hill.

"First Boston marathon. Cold, windy, rainy... but what a memorable day," he wrote. "@zacefron and @coourtking waiting for me at the finish was all the motivation I needed. This pic was taken at mi 18 right before heartbreak hill, thanks Jacqueline for the fuel and pick-me-up!"

Dylan completed the marathon with a net time of 2:57:50 and a gun time of 3:00:55. 

Well done, Dylan!
