121st Boston Marathon is Meb's last run, Rupp's first

Boston to mark 4th anniversary of deadly marathon bombing

Boston to mark 4th anniversary of deadly marathon bombing

The 26.2-mile course will start in Hopkinton, Mass., and will run through downtown Boston.

"I was hacking through the jungle". "But I think we need all kinds of people. Everybody has a gift to give".

The 2017 Boston Marathon is expected to bring in $192.2 million for the Boston economy, according to the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau (GBCVB).

But Gareau's victory was in the race's amateur era, so there was no cash to recover.

But in case anything did happen, he carried a phone with him as he ran the course this year-a first for the experienced marathoner.

The video above shows some of the runners as they begin either the marathon, half-marathon or fun run.

But Briggs struck a deal with her: If Switzer could complete the distance on a training run, he would bring her himself. "He was like an evangelist and helped me sign up". She said she used her initials because her first name was misspelled on her birth certificate, Kathrine, and she was exhausted of repeating the error.

"I generally am pretty law-abiding".

"I always wanted to do it, but I wasn't sure I'd be getting in", he said. "I ask for forgiveness".

A four-time Olympian who earned a silver medal in Athens in 2004 and won the 2009 New York City Marathon - both times also ending long American droughts - Keflezighi's 2014 win in Boston is one of the signature moments in the race's century-old history.

"We will never forget the events of April 15, 2013", Walsh said in a statement. We salute every one.

The man was race director Jock Semple. Unfortunately, Kathrine was still disqualified, for no other reason than for being a woman. She became an author and TV commentator for the Olympics, World and National championships before returning to marathons at 64. "But nevertheless, she's a spirit child. You've reached it", said Lunenburg resident Kim Ortiz. "They just proved that they're all unique and wonderful and there are different ways to get to the finish line".

BOSTON (AP) — The Kenyans are back in Boston after a relative lull that saw them shut out in the world's most prestigious marathon twice in the past three years. Switzer credits her for starting a movement, and Gibb acknowledges that it probably needed someone else to carry it forward. In his three marathons, Rupp has finished first (in the Olympic trials), third and second. "I was serious about my running and I could not let fear stop me".

"I had to put back something which was not mine", Kiplagat told reporters.
