Monday’s 125th running of the Boston Marathon had a different feel to it, with the annual race taking place in October instead of April for the first time. As usual, Hopkinton rose to the occasion, welcoming thousands of participants and fans for a flawless start.
Winners included Kenyans Benson Kipruto (men) and Diana Kipyogei (women), along with Marcel Hug (men’s wheelchair) and Manuela Schar (women’s wheelchair). Chaz Davis — who is legally blind and ran with a guide — won the para athletes division, which for the first time in any marathon offered prize money.
