There were 25,314 of them. They came from 120 countries and all 50 states.

They were the 2022 Boston Marathon participants.

For the first time in three years, the world’s oldest annual marathon was held on its traditional Patriots’ Day date. The morning began with wind and chill before turning into perfect racing weather.

The Red Sox may have lost, but there were 25,000 winners on Boylston Street.

Sports are all about winning. The Marathon reminds us we can do it together. — 9:00 p.m.

Chances are there are fans elsewhere who will claim that their home city has a day that perfectly captures the competitiveness and camaraderie of sports like our Patriots Day.

Should you come across these creatures, don’t begrudge them their misguided daydream. They obviously haven’t been here on a day like Monday. They just cannot know any better.

Monday was one of those days, the kind you wish you could bottle up now and break open in the dead of February, when the winter refuses to end and the sports calendar doesn’t have much to boost a fan’s mood.

Kyle Sumatzkuku overcomes painful final stretch to make Hopi Tribe proud — 7:53 p.m.

By Nate Weitzer

When Kyle Sumatzkuku hit a wall around Mile 18 of the 126th Boston Marathon, he was able to draw upon not only the cheers of his family and friends, but also from the support of the entire Hopi Tribe.

The 25-year-old from the Mishongnovi village in the Hopi Reservation of Northeast Arizona took the field by storm last October, placing 48th with a time of 2 hours 26 minutes and 17 seconds. Six months later, Sumatzkuku posted another elite time, finishing Monday in 2:39:17, despite dealing with painful hamstring and quadricep cramps down the stretch.

Runners who finish well back in the pack cherish experience, honoring themselves and others — 7:42 p.m.

By Tonya Alanez

They finished behind the wave of elite runners Monday afternoon. The crowd along Boylston Street had thinned out.

But runners who finished well back in the pack, often to honor others or for the feeling of personal accomplishment, cherished the experience just the same.

Molly Milligan, 66, of Pacific Palisades, Calif., ran for her late cousin, Jan Galchick, who would have turned 66 on Marathon Monday. Galchick died of ovarian cancer in May 2021.

“Every mile I ran for her,” said Milligan who wore a bib with Jan’s name on it. “Spectators and volunteers were shouting her name and cheering her on. It was just amazing,” Milligan said, tearing up. “I’m so glad I did this. I’m still overwhelmed by it all.”

He didn’t think he’d be running the Marathon. He definitely didn’t think he’d only have two months to train — 6:45 p.m.

By Sarah Barber

When Steve Sullivan joined Boston EMS as an emergency medical technician in 2020, he didn’t know he’d be running the Boston Marathon two years later, and he definitely didn’t expect to only have two months to train for it.


Sullivan crossed the finish line at 3:52 p.m., completing his first ever marathon in 4:30.30.

“I only really trained for two months, but I put in about 260 miles in the last two months. I was hesitant at first, but I had to accept it, because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and it’s an honor to be able to take it.”

Boston EMS chief James Hooley receives one bib for the race from the BAA for being part of the organizing committee. He then gives it to a member of his department. This year, the bib was given to Sullivan.

“The chief called me one day to ask if I’d like to take the invitational spot because they were looking for someone who has been involved with the health and wellness program, which I’ve been honored to be able to do in the last year that I’ve worked here,” he said. “I had to convince myself to accept it, because I haven’t been with the department for very long, and there are other people here that run more than I do.”

Sullivan explained that Boston EMS has opportunities for anyone interested in helping with the health and wellness program. If employees have any sort of background or anything that they’re interested in, that they want to share with the department by teaching classes, they can get certified in that area.

For Sullivan, it was yoga. His EMT class had yoga instruction as part of their physical training, and he “just really took a liking to it.” After he graduated from the academy and got his badge, he began the process to become a certified yoga instructor.


Now, he teaches two yoga classes weekly and works with the Boston EMS running club. Sullivan’s classes are made up of EMS department employees, their friends and family and members of the Phoenix, a non-profit gym that places an emphasis on living a sober lifestyle.

“I also happen to be a person in recovery, so I just kind of get to bridge those two things for me, teaching classes in an environment like that has been really empowering,” Sullivan said.

Running in honor of a daughter who died too soon — 6:20 p.m.

By Emily Sweeney

CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski ran the Boston Marathon again in honor of his late daughter while raising money for other children who are fighting brain cancer.

At 11:22 a.m. Monday, Kaczynski wrote on Twitter: “And we’re off! I’m dedicating each mile of the Boston Marathon to a different little fighter. Thank you to everyone who has helped us raise $500,000.”

Kaczynski finished the race with a time of 4:16:49. His team included anchor John Berman and few other colleagues from CNN, he said.

“It was really great to have a full team of people this year,” Kaczynski said in a phone interview Monday after he finished the race. “It was amazing.”

Her bib read ‘1972′ — 6:15 p.m.

By Sarah Barber

At age 25, Val Rogosheske made history.

One of eight women to compete in the first Boston Marathon women’s field in of the Boston Marathon in 1972, her race bib that year was “F7.”


She is now 75, and on Monday, 50 years after her first appearance, she returned to be part of a field of 12,000 women. This time, her bib read “1972.”

Kevin Cullen: Back to a type of normal as we can get — 6:13 p.m.

After three years of infection and disruption, the Boston Marathon took its rightful place on Patriots Day again.

Some 30,000 runners took part. Thousands of Red Sox fans left Fenway Park after the traditional matinee game, spilling into Kenmore Square to catch a glimpse of the runners. It was sunny and seasonally cool. The Kenyans and the Ethiopians battled it out for the top spots.

In other words, it was back to normal, or at least back to as normal we can hope to get.

92 marathons in 92 days? No problem for Jacky Hunt-Broersma. — 6:11 p.m.

By Amin Touri

Jacky Hunt-Broersma made the right onto Hereford Street and the left onto Boylston just before 3 p.m. on Monday, soaking it all in. Of the 92 marathons she’s run in the last 92 days, the final steps of the Boston Marathon were surely the loudest.

The South African amputee athlete is in the final stretch of a remarkable challenge: 102 marathons in 102 days, all on a carbon-fiber blade two decades after losing her left leg to Ewing sarcoma, a rare cancer.

Boston is the only official marathon that Hunt-Broersma is taking on — the rest of her 26.2-mile excursions taking place on loops near her Arizona home or indoors on a treadmill — and she finished in 5:05:13 on Monday.

‘I hated it, I absolutely hated every minute of it’ — 5:15 p.m.

By Tonya Alanez

Tracey Lloyd kept her remarks about her first Boston Marathon blunt and to the point.

" I hated it, I absolutely hated every minute of it,” said Lloyd, 55, of the United Kingdom. “I’m supposed to enjoy it but I didn’t enjoy it at all. I’m too old for this.”

But it wasn’t all insufferable, she said.

“What I have done is I’ve met some fab people,” Lloyd said. “You meet them on the bus, you meet them in line. The running community is so supportive and extraordinary.”

‘It’s always a struggle’ — 5:00 p.m.

By Tonya Alanez

Paula Marcus is trying to run the six major marathons. The Boston Marathon on Monday was her fifth.

With a time of 4:23, she said she did better than she expected.

“I’m really happy,” said Marcus, 40, of Toronto. “Considering I don’t like hills and the whole course is hills. I would’ve been happy with 4:30.”

Christoph Seils, 58, of Berlin, said after 17 marathons Monday’s Boston Marathon was his “hardest yet.”

“The up and down, but did it!” Seils said.

“It’s always a struggle,” Seils said. " but if you’re at the finish line, everyone’s mostly happy.”

‘Every mile I ran for her’ — 4:45 p.m

By Tonya Alanez

Molly Milligan, 66, of Pacific Palisades, Calif., ran for her late cousin, Jan Galchick, who would have turned 66 on Marathon Monday.

Galchick died of ovarian cancer in May 2021.

“Every mile I ran for her,” said Milligan, who wore a bib with Jan’s name on it.

Spectators and volunteers were shouting her name and cheering her on.

It was just amazing,” Milligan said, tearing up. “I’m so glad I did this. I’m still overwhelmed by it all.”

Milligan qualified for the Boston Marathon with a time of 4:27 in 2019 but didn’t get a chance to run it until Monday. She came in at 4:50.

“Father time and the pandemic kind of set me back,” Milligan said. " I didn’t even come close to my qualifying time, but it doesn’t even matter.”

50 years after she first ran, Val Rogosheske finishes — 4:29 p.m.

By Andrew Mahoney

Fifty years after she was part of the first official women’s field for the Boston Marathon, Val Rogosheske returned to to run the course. One of eight women who lined up at the starting line in 1972, her experience was a little different this time around.

“Well, in ‘72, I kept running the whole way, when people around me were walking. This time, I was walking and other people were running,” Rogosheske joked, shortly after she crossed the finish line in a time of 6:38:57.

She was greeted at the finish line by Sara Mae Berman and Kathrine Switzer, both of whom were also part of the inaugural official women’s field.

“These women have been so supportive, it’s really been wonderful,” said Rogosheske, 75.

Also offering support were her daughters, Allie and Abby, who ran the race with their mother and made signs to show the crowd who their mother was. The trio was cheered on the course by spectators and runners alike.

They were part of a women’s field that surpassed 14,000. The significance was not lost on the Minnesota native.

“Fifty years is a long time, but there’s been so much progress made, it makes it seem short,” she said.

BAA CEO Tom Grilk presented Rogosheske with a medal.

“I’m so honored to be here today. It was a long slog for me, but it was a wonderful experience,” she said.

Read more about Rogosheske here.

Molly Seidel explains why she dropped out — 3:40 p.m.

In a statement issued through the BAA, Olympic medalist Molly Seidel explained why she dropped out around the 16-mile mark, saying she was dealing with a hip impingement.

“It was feeling good the last few weeks and no indication that it would hurt today,” she said. “I went out aggressively in the race but wasn’t able to hang with the leaders but tried to give it my best shot even though the hip started to lock up around halfway. By mile 16 I was in an good deal of pain and I had to make the difficult call to stop at a medical tent to avoid really damaging anything.”

Adrianne Haslet finishes: ‘It was the best day of my life’ — 3:30 pm.

Adrianne Haslet, the ballroom dancer who lost a leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon explosions, finished Monday’s race just before 3:10 p.m., marking a triumphant return to the course for the 41-year-old who battled back not only from the 2013 attacks but also from getting struck and severely injured by a car in 2019.

The Boston Athletic Association’s official online runner tracker said Haslet, wearing bib number 246, crossed the finish line at 3:08 p.m. Monday.

“I’ll remember every face and every sign and every dog and every baby along that course,” she told WBZ after the race. “I didn’t notice — I didn’t notice the mile markers until 22, 23 ... I was just having so much fun with Shalane.”

Haslet choked up at moments while reflecting on her finish.

“It was the best day of my life,” she said. “And I’m so proud of us.”

The best signs along the Marathon route — 2:45 p.m.

By Amanda Kaufman

The runners on the Boston Marathon’s course weren’t the only ones bringing their A-game on Monday.

The marathon was held on Patriots’ Day for the first time since 2019, and with its return to spring came the crowds along the route — and their homemade signs.

From Hopkinton to Boston’s Back Bay, spectators came prepared with posters that included messages ranging from encouraging to punny to playful.

Here’s a look at some of the signs spotted along the 26.2 mile course.

It’s the 50th anniversary of the first official women’s field — 2:30 p.m.

The picture is iconic. A woman, dressed in all gray and wearing a No. 261 bib, her dark blond hair cut in a bob, is in the middle of a crowd of runners. A man approaches and puts his hands on her, trying to force her off the course.

It was the 1967 Boston Marathon. A 20-year-old Syracuse University student entered under the name K. Switzer, and wore her sweatshirt hood over her head at the race’s start.

Shortly after she began, race director Jock Semple and Marathon chairman Will Cloney charged toward her on the course and tried to pull her off track.

The men surrounding her — her teammates at Syracuse — fended the officials off.

K. Switzer — better known as Kathrine — went on to become the first woman to complete the Boston Marathon as a registered participant, five years before the race had an official women’s field.

Now, 50 years after that first official field, women make up nearly half the participants. In 2022, the Boston Athletic Association is celebrating the women who paved the way for thousands in the world’s oldest annual marathon.

It wasn’t until 1972 that the BAA allowed women to officially enter the race. Eight finished, led by winner Nina Kuscsik.

Seven of the eight women who ran in the first official field are pictured before the race in 1972 (from left): Nina Kuscsik (who won the inaugural race), Kathrine Switzer Miller, Elaine Pedersen, Ginny Collins, Pat Barrett, Frances Morrison, and Sara Mae Berman.Handout

“Back in the day, we were told your uteruses would fall out, that you’d be unable to bear children, that you would not survive the event, like it was too much for our little bodies to do,” said Val Rogosheske. “I never felt like I had to have fortitude to challenge that because I knew in my bones it wasn’t true.”

Rogosheske will run the 2022 marathon alongside her daughters and granddaughter. Watching along the course will be four of her peers from that first run: Pat Barrett, Sara Mae Berman, Kuscsik, and Switzer.

Nancy Butler traveled from Detroit to support her friend, who is running for the second time.

For her, the 50th anniversary really stands out.

”It’s pretty awesome,” she said. “It’s nice to cheer on all the lady runners out here today.”

Former NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth crosses the finish line — 2:15 p.m.

By Andrew Mahoney

Former NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth enjoyed his Boston Marathon experience, especially compared to what he endured when he ran in Chicago in October

“We didn’t have a great day in Chicago. It was really hot and humid, so the weather here was great,” said Kenseth, who finished in 3:01:40. “I love this area. I love coming up to Boston. I always loved racing up in New Hampshire. It’s a great place.

“The atmosphere was second to none,” Kenseth told WBZ-TV. “It was one of the better experiences in my life, honestly. This was really cool, the crowd, the enthusiasm. Just a huge event, fun to be a part of it.”

Kenseth, 50, stopped competing in NASCAR in 2020, but he was happy to hear that he beat Jimmy Johnson’s time. His former competitor ran the race in 2019 in 3:09:07.

“He was a lot younger than me,” joked Kenseth.

What it’s like to be an EMT at Heartbreak Hill — 2:00 p.m.

By Nate Weitzer

BRIGHTON – A medical professional’s job on the Boston Marathon course can be as fickle as the New England weather.

Just ask Steve McHugh, 55, a veteran EMT with Boston EMS who has been working the Marathon since 1991, including 10 years patrolling Mile 18, 19, and 20 in Brighton.

In 2012, McHugh and his colleagues dealt with a lot of hyperthermia cases as runners crested Heartbreak Hill in 86-degree temperatures, then started to overheat on their way down Commonwealth Avenue.

In 2018, runners were more often dealing with hypothermia as they trudged along in freezing rain with temperatures barely reaching 40 degrees.

As long as the issue isn’t life threatening, McHugh said EMTs will stand in support of their partners with the American Red Cross and Boston Athletic Association at medical tents, which appear at each mile along the course.

If a runner, or spectator, needs immediate medical attention, EMTs are ready to spring into action.

McHugh said the most dramatic incident in his career working the marathon didn’t involve a runner. While working the beat near Cleveland Circle, his crew saved the life of an on-duty police officer who was having a cardiac episode.

“I could work another 20 Marathons and I don’t think I’d see anything that dramatic,” said McHugh, who lives in Wilmington.

Early in his career, McHugh said Boston EMS learned a good deal about the potential for runners to become hyponatremic – an electrolyte imbalance that often occurs when the body is getting plenty of fluids, but not enough salt.

Regardless of the weather, runners can sometimes pick up too much momentum after Heartbreak Hill and trip on their way down to Cleveland Circle. One elite male runner tripped over a stray soda can around Mile 19 and dislocated his shoulder this year, ending his race.

A vibe check on Boylston Street — 1:50 p.m.

By Sarah Barber

Cheers and claps fill the air as runners cross the finish line, giving themselves a break after the last 26.2 miles.

The atmosphere at the corner of Dartmouth and Boylston is thrilling and inspiring, athletes of all ages are smiling and embracing, enjoying the light breeze and the cloudless sky.

The city is alive as it supports the thousands of runners who have just triumphed in one of the biggest marathons in the country. Volunteers offer countless congratulations, waters and hand out medals to the finishers, and finishers thank them for their time.

Henry Richard, older brother of Martin, running 2022 — 1:39 p.m.

By Travis Andersen

The older brother of Martin Richard is running the Boston Marathon today, and his father told WBZ News Radio that he believes Martin will be watching his 20-year-old sibling as the family gathers at the finish line to cheer him on.

“We always feel him,” said Bill Richard of his son Martin, who was 8 when he was killed in the 2013 Boston Marathon explosions near the finish line, in an interview with the radio station.

Bill Richard said he’s certain Henry Richard, Martin’s older brother, will feel Martin’s presence as well as he participates in the race today. Martin would have turned 18 this coming June.

They’ve been watching since 1971 — 1:20 p.m.

By Rose Pecci

Wendell and Eileen Cerney, a couple from Duxbury, have been attending the Boston Marathon as spectators since 1971. They watch from the same spot in Coolidge Corner every year.

“It’s a great event, the city is just alive and people are willing to chat and share food. We’ve seen all kinds of things here,” Wendell said.

He described one incident where a runner dressed in a groom’s outfit stopped and proposed to his girlfriend in the middle of the race.

“You get to see these elite runners and these unbelievable stories,” he said. “This is great to be out here again after three years.”

Wendell, who is 75, said the race inspires him to get back out there.

“Part of me, when I see this, says oh geez, Wendell, you still have it in you,” he said.

Wendell and Eileen chatted with their neighboring spectators and offered them snacks.

Embracing the tradition of the scream tunnel — 1:03 p.m.

By Grace Gilson

Olivia Fennell is a senior at Wellesley College and one of the hundreds of students that lined the barricade along the marathon path at her school. Both her moms went to Wellesley, and she says they remember the scream tunnel and cheering on the runners during their time.

“It feels like carrying on a tradition to get to cheer on this year’s runners, and I think this year especially people are really excited to be out, having fun after not having it for years, and so there’s definitely a real sense of community and enthusiasm for being a part of it,” said Fennell.

Five things to know about women’s winner Peres Jepchirchir — 12:58 p.m.

By Sarah Barber

1. She is the defending Olympic marathon champion, but she wasn’t originally selected for the Kenyan Olympic Team.

At the 2020 Tokyo Games she ran a 2:27.20 to earn the gold medal in the marathon event. She was 16 seconds ahead of the runner-up.

2. She won the New York City Marathon in November.

Jepchirchir had another battle to the finish line in New York, she ran a 2:22.39 with a sprint finish after battling against two competitors for most of the race.

3. She was the female world-record holder for the half-marathon, and she beat it.

In October 2020, Jepchirchir ran a 1:05.16 in Poland, 18 seconds faster than the world record she set in Prague seven weeks prior.

4. She ran the fifth-fastest marathon by a woman in history.

Jepchirchir’s personal best for a marathon is 2:17.16, which she set at the Valencia Marathon in 2020.

5. She started running at an early age, but didn’t take to roads right away.

Growing up in Western Kenya, she ran three to five kilometers to and from school each day, but she got inspiration from female marathoners and began road running in 2013.

Runner who collapsed in 2021 gets a live view from the course — 12:50 p.m.

By Hanna Kruger

Meghan Roth, the 35-year-old veteran runner whose Boston Marathon dreams were dashed last fall when she went into cardiac arrest at mile 7.4, did not sign up for this spring’s race.

But she did get a live view of the action when marathoner Nick Haney FaceTimed her from the course. Haney was one of the many medical professionals in the race or on the sideline came to Roth’s aid when she fell mid-race.

“Live @ Boston Marathon from Nick Haney mile 7.4 where I collapsed on the course in cardiac arrest this past October!!” she wrote on social media.

Roth, who lives in Minnesota, was cruising along last fall at just over 6 minutes a mile, on pace to beat the personal best that had qualified her for the US Olympic Team Trials in 2020. But suddenly, she stumbled, and then collapsed midstride.

Within two minutes, an ad-hoc collection of medical professionals rushed to her aid. Among them, Haney, a fellow runner and paramedic from Oregon; a nursing student who lived nearby; a retired ICU nurse from Milford; a California doctor running the course despite aching legs courtesy of the London Marathon he’d completed a week prior; and an emergency room physician assistant who had tended to victims of the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting. Despite their efforts, everyone feared that Roth might not make it to the hospital alive.

But she pulled through, in part due to the quick thinking of those five samaritans.

“Waking up to a nightmare. Waking up to find out how very fortunate I am. How fragile life is & how quickly things can take a turn for the worst. How we can never take anything for granted & writing this to you now just being able to tell my story,” she wrote in the days after the race, having pieced together the events that occurred after she went unconscious.

Today Roth is back on the streets, regularly clocking 10 mile runs at 6 minutes a mile pace. She plans to be back in Boston in 2023.

Scott Fauble, top American men’s winner, is at it again — 12:28 p.m.

By Andrew Mahoney

Three years after finishing as the top American at the Boston Marathon with a personal best of 2:09:09, Scott Fauble was at it again, duplicating his seventh place finish and again finishing as the top American. He knocked 17 seconds off his time, recording a new personal best of 2:08:52.

“It played out differently, but for right now it feels pretty similar, it feels about the same,” Fauble told WBZ-TV. “So many good feelings.”

Fauble, 30, credited the crowd with helping him surpass his personal best.

“Man, it was a lot of fun out there. It was really hard,” said Fauble. “The crowds were amazing. They brought me home that last mile. I had nothing left. They were so loud. I am so thankful for them.”

The five-time All-American at the University of Portland also talked about his decision-making and patience at the beginning of the race.

“Today I definitely made the right decisions, said Fauble, who trains in Flagstaff, Ariz. “Around 8 [kilometers] we were really fast, and the leaders made a big push. I thought ‘That’s too early, it’s too early.’

“Then right around 15, I used that big downhill and committed to it. From thereon in it was just gas, gas, gas.”

Des Linden isn’t done yet — 12:24 p.m.

Des Linden, a crowd favorite since her victory in the 2018 Boston Marathon, was the third American woman across the finish line. She finished in 2:28:47.

Immediately after she finished, the 38-year-old confirmed she’d be back to run Boston again.

“This is number nine, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.”

Nell Rojas: ‘This is for all the strong girls’ — 12:18 p.m.

Nell Rojas was the top American finisher in the women’s race, running a 2:25:57 which was good for 10th overall.

At the finish line, with her father — who is her coach — by her side, Rojas explained what the finish meant.

“This is for all the strong girls, the Latinas, the minorities,” Rojas said on WBZ after finishing. “The people who don’t believe they belong.”

Olympic medalist Molly Seidel drops out of race — 12:15 p.m.

By Katie McInerney and Sarah Barber

Molly Seidel, the former Boston resident who won the bronze medal in the marathon at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, has dropped out of the 2022 Boston Marathon, the BAA announced.

Seidel, fresh off the podium in Tokyo and a top-10 finish in the New York Marathon, was competing in her first Boston Marathon. It is a course she’s familiar with from her training, but had never tackled while sporting a bib number.

Seidel lived in Boston for four years before moving to Arizona to train year-round, and often trained on the middle stretch of the course, including Heartbreak Hill.

An underdog in the 2020 Tokyo Games, having run her first marathon at the Olympic Trials (2:27.31) where she placed second, Seidel went on to earn the bronze medal in the marathon event (2:27.46) and finish sixth in New York (2:24.42).

Peres Jepchirchir wins women’s elite race — 12:06 p.m.

Peres Jepchirchir won the women’s elite race with an official time of 2:21:01.

Jepchirchir ran alongside Ababel Yeshaneh of Ethiopia for the final miles of the race. After trading the lead for the final three minutes, Jepchirchir pulled away with just two blocks to go.

Yeshaneh finished in 2:21:05, four seconds behind.

In 2021, Jepchirchir, 28, became the first person to win the Olympic gold medal and the New York City Marathon in the same year. She was the 2021 Abbott World Marathon Majors co-champion with Jepkosgei.

Yeshaneh, 30, had run a personal best at 2:20:51 in Chicago in 2019, good for second place, her best performance in an Abbott World Major.

How we got here — 12:01 p.m.

The women’s pack started to dwindle at the fifth mile. A group of 11 runners continued to stick together through the next three miles. After mile nine, the pack was down to five, and then four after 10.

By the end of the 11th mile it was down to three: Joyciline Jepkosgei (Kenya), Ababel Yeshaneh (Ethiopia), Peres Jepchirchir (Kenya). It would stay that way until the 23rd mile, when Yeshaneh and Jepchiri gained some separation as Jepskogei fell back.

Jepchirchir and Yeshaneh neck and neck entering final mile — 12:00 p.m.

In the women’s race, Kenya’s Peres Jepchirchir and Ethiopia’s Ababel Yeshaneh are trading the lead back and forth with a mile to go.

Five things to know about men’s winner Evans Chebet — 11:53 a.m.

By Sarah Barber

1. This is his first major marathon win.

Chebet has won marathons in both Valencia and Buenos Aires, but his race today (2:06.51) marks the biggest win of his career. His split times nearing the end of the course were less than three minutes per kilometer.

2. He ran Boston in 2018, but didn’t finish.

During the 2018 Marathon, Chebet dropped out around the 30-kilometer mark due to inclement weather, along with a number of other competitors.

3. He beat out a former Boston and Chicago Marathon champion for his victory in Valencia.

Chebet’s most notable finish leading up to Boston was his victory in the Valencia marathon in December 2020. His time of 2:03.00 was the sixth-fastest for the course, beating Lawrence Cherono by four seconds.

4. He has been a top-5 finisher in London, Berlin, Seoul, Valencia, and Buenos Aires.

His most recent marathon was in London on Oct. 3, he placed fourth overall with a time of 2:05.43.

5. He is a citizen in three countries and has competed under two different flags.

Chebet holds citizenship in his native country Kenya, the United States, and Azerbaijan. He competed today as a Kenyan citizen, but spent three years competing for Azerbaijan, including at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Kenya’s Evans Chebet wins Boston Marathon elite men’s race — 11:43 a.m.

Kenya’s Evans Chebet pulled away to win the 2022 men’s elite race in an official time of 2:06:51.

It’s the first win in Boston for Chebet, who is 33. He ran in 2018 but did not finish.

The Kenyan had finished first or second in 10 career marathons, but had not finished higher than third in the Abbott World Marathon Majors (Berlin, 2016)

His personal best is 2:03:00 in Valencia Spain in 2020.

At mile 21, Evans Chebet and Gabriel Geay ran a 4:28 mile to pull away from the pack. Chebet then pulled away in the 22nd mile with a 4:26.

Chebet embraced Benson Kipruto, last year’s winner, after the race. They both hail from the same part of Kenya.

Kipruto finished third in 2:07:27. Lawrence Cherono finished second in 2:07:21 for a Kenyan sweep.

“When you see other people getting closer to you, you’ve got to shoot up,” he said of his surge at Mile 23 through a translator at the finish line.

Closing in on the finish, Chebet takes the lead — 11:39 a.m.

We’re within a mile of the finish. It doesn’t look like anyone can catch him.

The men just ran their fastest mile of the race at 22 — 11:29 a.m.

With just about five miles to go, the elite men pick up the pace — 11:26 a.m.

Evans Chebet has broken out from the pack alongside Gabriel Geay of Tanzania.

Molly Seidel has run this course before, but never with a bib — 11:20 a.m.

By Sarah Barber

Fresh off the podium in Tokyo and a top-10 finish in the New York Marathon, Molly Seidel is competing in her first Boston Marathon, a course she’s familiar with from her training, but has never tackled while sporting a bib number.

Seidel lived in Boston for four years before moving to Arizona to train year-round, and often trained on the middle stretch of the course, including Heartbreak Hill.

An underdog in the 2020 Tokyo Games, having run her first marathon at the Olympic Trials (2:27.31) where she placed second, Seidel went on to earn the bronze medal in the marathon event (2:27.46) and finish sixth in New York (2:24.42).

But the big question is how will she finish in Boston? Around the eight mile mark in Natick, Seidel fell back from the leaders, and at 25 kilometers, she was at least three minutes behind the lead pack, but still on track to set a personal record.

American Elkanah Kibet holds the lead at 30K — 11:14 a.m.

Elkanah Kibet was born in Kenya but became an American citizen in 2013.

The scene in Brookline — 11:08 a.m.

By Rose Pecci

Between the Trader Joe’s and Dunkin donuts in Brookline, marathon spectators wait for competitors to pass through the course at Coolidge Corner.

The sun is out warming up the spectators, as it is slightly cold. Many have shed their jackets to show off their blue and yellow “Boston Strong” apparel.

Lucy Harmon, 25-year old member of the Greater Boston Track Club, is here supporting her two coaches, Tom Derderian and Rod Hemingway.

She holds up a sign that says “Big Toes Only.” Tomorrow will mark the one-year anniversary of her joining the Greater Boston Track Club. She hopes to one day run in the Boston Marathon like her two coaches, but for now is an enthusiastic spectator.

At 17th mile, two Americans break out — 11:05 a.m.

American CJ Albertson and Elkanah Kibet, a Kenyan-American running for the US, are ahead of the pack, which is close behind.

At the halfway point, it’s down to three in the women’s field — 11:00 a.m.

Through 13 miles, the women’s pack is down to three: Joyciline Jepkosgei (Kenya), Ababel Yesaneh (Ethiopia), and Peres Jepchirchir (Kenya).

Molly Seidel was the top American, in 11th, and Nell Rojas was in 12th.

This Hopi runner is looking for an encore — 10:55 a.m.

By Nate Weitzer

Kyle Sumatzkuku, 25, from the Mishongnovi village of the Hopi reservation in Arizona, blazed through the field last October to finish 48th with a time of 2:26:17.

A former runner at Bacone Junior College in Oklahoma, Sumatzkuku said he was inspired to perform last October on Indigineous Peoples’ Day.

Duane Humeyestewa, who hails from the same village, is with Sumatzkuku as he produces a documentary about his journey as an elite endurance runner. Sumatzkuku’s time was 2:34, faster than Ellison Brown, of the Narragansett tribe, who won the 1938 Boston Marathon in 2:28:51. He began the race with wave 1 at 10 a.m.

Manuela Schär wins women’s wheelchair race — 10:46 a.m.

Manuela Schär won the 2022 women’s wheelchair race after leading nearly wire-to-wire. Her unofficial time is 1:41:06

This is the fourth Boston Marathon title for Schar, who is 37.

Her 2017 win was her first in Boston and came in a personal best of 1:28:17, which was also a course record and world best. She also won in 2019 and, last October, she captured her third title by nearly 15 minutes.

Schär earned five medals at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic games, including a pair of golds in the 400m and 800m. Schär took home three silver medals in the 1500m, 5000m, and marathon. Schär has competed in the Paralympic Games five times (2004, 2008, 2012, 2016, and 2020).

Schär is from Kriens, Switzerland.

Through the half, Albertson leads the men — 10:42 a.m.

Daniel Romanchuk wins 2022 Boston Marathon men’s wheelchair title — 10:29 a.m.

American Daniel Romanchuk ran away with the men’s wheelchair race with an official time of 1:26:58.

This is the second Boston Marathon title for the 23-year-old Romanchuk. He previously won Boston in 2019 with a personal best time of 1:21:36. He finished second in October in 1:25:46.

Defending champion Marcel Hug of Switzerland withdrew from the race early this morning due to medical reasons.

‘Everybody wants to run Boston’ — 10:22 a.m.

By Taylor Dolven

Along the route leading to the start line, Juan Carlos Torrealba and his wife Itza Alonso waved a Costa Rica flag high in the air. The couple donned “Pura Vida” shirts as they cheered on their son-in-law running the Boston Marathon for the first time.

Eduardo Rojas began running about 15 years ago, they said, and has always had his eye on Boston. His in-laws said he was very excited this morning.

“Everybody wants to run Boston,” said Torrealba.

The family traveled from Costa Rica on Thursday to be in town for the race and are staying through the week.

Update: Women’s elites at Mile 5 — 10:19 a.m.

At Mile 5, Kenya’s Joyciline Jepkosgei and Peres Jepchirchir are leading the pack.

Romanchuk, Schär hold big leads in wheelchair races — 10:13 a.m.

Talk about prime real estate — 10:10 a.m.

By Taylor Dolven

When Todd and Laura Wauters bought their property along Grove Street in Hopkinton five years ago, its location along the route from Athlete’s Village to the start line was part of the appeal.

By 9 a.m. Monday, around 25 friends had gathered in the front yard to cheer on the hundreds of runners making their way to the start.

“It’s a great time,” said Todd. He ran the marathon on its 100 thanniversary in 1996 with his dad.

Blue and yellow balloons tied to the fence waved in the wind. The speakers blasted “More Than A Feeling” by Boston as the crowd offered runners coffee and even the bathroom inside if they needed it.

Women’s elite race update at the 5K mark — 10:05 a.m.

Des Linden, who won the 2018 Boston Marathon, moved to the lead.

The first wave of racers is off! — 10:00 a.m.

Do you have a friend running the race? You can find out how to track their progress here.

Adrianne Haslet, who lost her leg in the 2013 bombing, is running alongside Olympian Shalane Flanagan in the para-athlete field. Read more here.

Here’s a rundown of which bib numbers are in which wave.

CJ Albertson loses his lead — 9:53 a.m.

CJ Albertson, the men’s leader, has been passed in the third mile.

Albertson got out to a fast lead this year, the same way he did in 2021. He ultimately finished 10th last year.

Romanchuk leads at 15-mile mark — 9:50 a.m.

Daniel Romanchuk has gone out to a half-a-minute lead over Aaron Pike at the 15-mile mark in the men’s wheelchair race.

And the elite women’s race is underway — 9:45 a.m.

The crowd gives a loud round of applause to Molly Seidel, Desiree Linden, and New York Marathon winner Peres Jepchirchir as the race gets underway.

Defending champion Diana Kipyokei is not in the field.

Four women who’ve gone under 2 hours and 20 minutes are in the field: Jepchirchir (2:17:16), Joyciline Jepkosgei (2:17:43), Ethiopia’s Degitu Azimeraw (2:17:58), and Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat (2:19:50).

The elite men’s race is underway — 9:37 a.m.

The men’s field features five men who’ve run under 2:04: Ethiopia’s Birhanu Legese (2:02:48), the third-fastest ever, Kenya’s Evans Chebet (2:03:00), Lawrence Cherono (2:03:04), Sisay Lemma (2:03:06), and Ethiopia’s Kinde Atanaw (2:03:51).

The course record was set in 2011 in a time of 2:03:02.

The handcycles and duos are off — 9:30 a.m.

Next is the men’s and women’s elites.

Elite race preview: This is the fastest field in Boston Marathon history — 9:25 a.m.

By John Powers

The restoration of the marathon to its customary date has created stacked fields in both elite races. Olympians such as Kenya’s Peres Jepchirchir, the women’s gold medalist, and former Boston men’s champion Lawrence Cherono, who finished fourth at the Games, who couldn’t have made the short turnaround last fall, are here.

“I am grateful and feel honored to be in Boston,” said Jepchirchir, who won New York in November. “It would be a great thing for me if I were to win.”

And since the London Marathon again has been deferred until autumn, Boston was able to lure both of its defending champions, Kenya’s Joyciline Jepkosgei and Ethiopia’s Sisay Lemma.

“I was hoping to run Boston when I started my career because it is an iconic race, the oldest race,” said Jepkosgei, who won New York in 2019. “So I am happy to be here.”

Lemma has run here twice, with painful results; he DNFed in 2017 and was 30th in 2019. So he’s out for redemption.

“I want a good result,” Lemma said. “So I come for that now.”

The blue-ribbon additions have made for the fastest fields in race history, with four women who’ve gone under 2 hours and 20 minutes: Jepchirchir (2:17:16), Jepkosgei (2:17:43), Ethiopia’s Degitu Azimeraw (2:17:58), and Kenya’s Edna Kiplagat (2:19:50).

“This year the field is so strong and so competitive,” said Kiplagat, who won here in 2017 and was runner-up in the last two races. “I am expecting the race to be fast but I am happy that my preparation was good. So I am ready for the challenge.”

The men’s field features five men who’ve run under 2:04: Ethiopia’s Birhanu Legese (2:02:48), the third-fastest ever, Kenya’s Evans Chebet (2:03:00), Cherono (2:03:04), Lemma (2:03:06), and Ethiopia’s Kinde Atanaw (2:03:51).

At the 10K mark in the men’s race, Daniel Romanchuk and Aaron Pike have broken away from the pack. Hiroki Nishida’s early lead was wiped out.

Scenes from Hopkinton — 9:16 a.m.

By Taylor Dolven

Hordes of runners gathered at the Athlete’s Village at Hopkinton Middle School around 9 a.m. Some stretched, some jogged off the pre-race jitters, others waited in long lines for port-a-potties or for photo ops in front of marathon signs.

Jeff McDonnell, 30, calmly read a book aptly titled “The Rise of Ultra Runners” away from the crowds. He was originally signed up to run in 2020 and postponed until this year.

He runs “mostly for fun,” he said. When he started running years ago, every running he ran into talked of Boston.

“Boston always comes up, it seemed like the most famous one,” he said.

He plans to ditch the book along with his sweatshirt in one of the bins for donated items just before the starting line.

Boston city councilor to run the course — 9:08 a.m.

By Christina Prignano

Outgoing Boston city councilor Lydia Edwards tweeted Monday that she’s lacing up her shoes to run the Marathon. Edwards, who was recently elected to serve in the State Senate, posted a photo of her bib number and included a link to donate to a scholarship fund for working mothers.

The women’s wheelchair race has begun — 9:05 a.m.

Switzerland’s Manuela Schär is the defending women’s champion.

It is 53.5 degrees at the start of the marathon.

The men’s wheelchair racers are off — 9:02 a.m.

Meet the Marathon marshals: the Boston Pride — 8:45 a.m.

By Matt Pepin

Two members of the Boston Pride hockey team are the grand marshals of the marathon, and they brought the Premier Hockey Federation’s top prize, the Isobel Cup, with them to the start area in Hopkinton.

Team captain Jillian Dempsey and player Mary Parker are both from Massachusetts. They will ride ahead of the race and be joined by their Pride teammates at the finish area.

The Pride won its second straight PHF championship in March.

“It’s great to bring a trophy back to Boston,” Dempsey said in an interview on WBZ. “That’s always the goal every season.”

Meet the wheelchair competitors — 8:35 a.m.

Marcel Hug, the Swiss dynamo who has won five Boston Marathons — including 2021 — has withdrawn from the men’s wheelchair race due to medical reasons, according to the BAA.

American Daniel Romanchuk, a two-time winner, might be the favorite now.

Switzerland’s Manuela Schär is the defending women’s champion, and will contend once again for a crown.

The men’s wheelchair race begins at 9:02 a.m. The women’s wheelchair race begins at 9:05 a.m.

‘The Hoyts will be part of this race forever’ — 8:25 a.m.

By Matt Pepin

Team Hoyt, running in memory of its founder, Dick Hoyt, who famously pushed his son, Rick, in a wheelchair for more than 30 Boston Marathons, has 22 runners on its charity team in 2022.

Russ Hoyt, Dick’s son, said in a pre-race interview on WBZ that the family’s commitment to the Boston Marathon remains strong even without Dick, who passed away in March of 2021, and Rick, who announced his retirement from the Boston Marathon in October of 2021. Rick has cerebral palsy and said last year he was no longer able to participate.

“The Hoyts will be a part of this race forever,” Russ said.

Russ Hoyt’s sons, Troy and Ryan, will be part of Team Hoyt’s contingent. Troy is running his second Boston Marathon, and Ryan his first.

They were known as ‘bandit runners.’ But there’s little place for them these days. — 8:20 a.m.

By Hayden Bird

For years, banditing in Boston was, for better or worse, a tradition. For many, it was a chance to bring an offbeat note to a formal event.

“I remember seeing a guy in a Godzilla costume,” one person said. “And I think he might have been dribbling a basketball.”

Bandits have been nominally discouraged from participating, though before 1996, there was never much of an attempt to keep them out.

“It’s been an evolution, like everything else,” said BAA chief operating officer Jack Fleming in a 2021 interview. “If I go back in history, maybe 1996 would’ve been the first year that we actually made an appeal, proactively.”

The job of the race spotter — 8:00 a.m.

By Nate Weitzer

In Hopkinton, race spotters are getting ready to deploy after their 8 a.m. briefing.

The spotters will mostly follow the progress of elite runners at the head of the pack, updating media and race officials on the gap between racers.

Mike from Westborough has been volunteering at the start line since 2007 after running the marathon the previous five years. While the crowds are smaller than in 2019, he says operations logistics are pretty much back to normal.

Mike says he thinks he has one more marathon left in him and he’ll look to qualify in the coming years.

Every qualified runner who applied got into the Marathon. Here’s how it happened. — 7:55 a.m.

By Alex Speier

While Boston Marathon runners have been required to meet a qualifying standard for more than a half-century, over the last decade even those who met that high bar haven’t been guaranteed a spot in the field. In 2012 and again in every year from 2014-21, in order to maintain what had been deemed a manageable field size, the Boston Athletic Association turned away thousands of marathoners who’d completed a 26.2-mile race in the official qualifying time.

In 2021, with the marathon’s field reduced to 20,000 because of the pandemic, a record 9,215 qualifying runners were turned away. Only those who’d beaten their demographic’s qualifying time by at least 7 minutes and 47 seconds were allowed to run.

Yi Zhang assumed there was little to no chance she’d get to run the 2022 Boston Marathon. She questioned whether she should bother applying.

But with encouragement from COO Jack Fleming, she did so, and in mid-November, the BAA shared news that thrilled Zhang and others who’d doubted that their qualifying times would be sufficient for admission. For the first time since 2013, there would be no cutoff time. Every applicant who’d run a qualifying time in another marathon was approved to run Boston.

“How lucky am I?” Zhang marveled.

Maybe you’ll spot a famous face along the course — 7:40 a.m.

It will be hard to spot a face in the crowd of 30,000 participants at the Marathon. But if you search hard enough, you may spy a couple of famous faces along the 26.2-mile race course.

Here’s a rundown of the celebrities and notables who will be running.

Bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet returns to run with Shalane Flanagan — 7:35 a.m.

By Khari Thompson

Adrianne Haslet’s long road back to the Boston Marathon is nearly at its end. When she begins Monday’s race, she’ll have her friend and inspiration beside her.

Haslet, who lost a leg in the 2013 bombings, will return to the iconic race for the first time in four years as a para athlete, with Olympian Shalane Flanagan as her support runner.

A view from the start — 7:20 a.m.

Six months after a quiet and rare October running, the Marathon start line is filled with tents, balloons, volunteers, and runners early on Patriots Day.

Andy Johnson, of Providence, has been setting up a merchandise stand at the start line for 25 years. He’s hoping for a big crowd in his first time selling since 2019, but doesn’t necessarily expect the same amount of traffic his stand saw three years ago.

There is a Kayem Franks truck in the common, the first food truck in recent memory at the start line. The truck usually sells in the Fenway area, and is offering breakfast items and coffee in addition to sausages and other lunch items.

Monday’s Marathon forecast — 7:00 a.m.

By Dave Epstein

You can find all sorts of stats about the weather during the Boston Marathon — there’s been temperatures along the route over 90 degrees. It has snowed, rained, and been windy. April is one of those months where almost any kind of weather is possible.

The weather will be nearly ideal as the race gets underway this morning and as it continues throughout the afternoon.

We begin with a cold morning with frost over the interior. Quickly, the strong April sunshine will boost temperatures into the mid fifties inland and low 50s on the coast during the afternoon.

Brilliant sunshine will grace the route from Hopkinton to Boston for most of the day, although clouds will start to increase in the afternoon ahead of our next storm system.

Tailwinds and headwinds can be a factor during the marathon, but this year winds are going to be light. There is likely going to be a bit of a sea breeze in the afternoon in Boston, however it will be insignificant in terms of affecting the race. I don’t suppose that runners care too much about putting sunscreen on throughout the race but spectators should definitely be aware that the sun is equivalent to Aug. 24 strength, and regardless of temperature you can get quite burned.

Defending men’s wheelchair champ Marcel Hug withdraws — 6:40 a.m.

Switzerland’s Marcel Hug, the defending champion in the men’s wheelchair race, has withdrawn.

Hug has won Boston five times.

Japan’s Sho Watanabe, who finished ninth in the race last year, also pulled out.

Is COVID-19 concern creeping in? — 6:25 a.m.

By Mike Damiano and Kay Lazar

It is a rare thing in the pandemic age: a weekend of citywide celebrations in Boston. It will also be a big test of where we are — and where we’re going — with COVID.

Thirty thousand runners are converging on the city for today’s Boston Marathon, and spectators are expected to pack the bleachers and sidewalks along Boylston Street to cheer them on.

It has been three years since a proper Marathon weekend. (Last October’s race was a scaled-back, COVID-conscious affair.) It is also the first time since the pandemic began that the city’s springtime rituals will occur with a majority of the population vaccinated.

But as the city emerges from darker days, there is a hint of anxiety in the air. After a lull in COVID infections in the early spring, case counts and hospitalizations have risen in recent weeks, suggesting that a modest resurgence of the coronavirus may have begun. In Boston, positivity rates on COVID tests have nearly tripled since early March.

So, what comes next: a new crisis, or simply a new normal?
