Boston is strong five years after Boston Marathon bombing

2018 Boston Marathon Live Results Runner Tracking InformationMore

Reigning Chicago Marathon champion Galen Rupp and a host of top USA women's contenders could produce the first American title sweep in 35 years at Monday's (today's) 122nd Boston Marathon.

The US challenge in a race that is the seventh event in the 2017-2018 Abbott World Marathon Majors Series XI will be led by Flanagan, who six months ago, at the age of 36, became the first American woman to win the New York City Marathon.

American Jordan Hasay, one of the top women's challengers in Monday's Boston Marathon, has withdrawn with a heel injury, officials said on Sunday.

Later that year, the former University of OR star followed with a third-place finish at the Chicago Marathon, with an improved time of 2:20:57.


The run will be noticeably different for him this year.

Last year, Hasay set the record for the fastest debut ever for an American woman in the Boston Marathon by three minutes, finishing third with a time of 2:23:00.

Captain Truchard says he's looking forward to running alongside those who are not only Vegas Strong, but also Boston Strong. She was also second to Rose Chelimo in the World Track and Field Championships marathon and fourth in NY. Of her experience training for the marathon all while raising funds for FamilyAid Boston, she states: "This is also my very first marathon and I'm giving my all to help ensure I can cross that finish line. I've also seen the impact generosity can have and because I believe so much in the work FamilyAid Boston does, I am doing everything I can to not only cross the finish line on April 16 but to spread awareness about this important cause".
