“Boston Marathon” on Today

April 16, 2018 | by: Bill Bradley

The 122nd edition of the world’s oldest annual marathon, this year’s race will begin on this morning, and it’s set to feature 17 top U.S. runners in an international field that includes almost two dozen Olympians. Kenya’s Geoffrey Kirui will look to defend his 2017 title against the likes of Rupp and fellow U.S. top runner Shadrack Biwott, who finished fourth a year ago, while the American women include Flanagan, who’s fresh off a New York City Marathon victory; and Molly Huddle, who owns more than 20 national titles.

All of it starts on Main Street in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, today.
