Paula Broadwell: The former military officer who gained name recognition after an affair with former CIA director David Petraeus finished in 3:48:09.

Jose Luis Sanchez: A Marine Staff Sergeant who lost the lower part of his left leg after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in 2011, Sanchez carried an American flag for the entire marathon. He recorded a time of 5:46:13.

Ben Beach: The 67-year-old from Maryland became the first person to complete 50 consecutive Boston Marathons. He finished in 5:01:26.


Ashley McNiff: McNiff ran in memory of her best friend Vanessa Marcotte and clocked a time of 4:49:31. Marcotte was a runner who was murdered in Princeton, Mass., in August.

William B. Evans: The Boston Police commissioner ran the marathon for the first time since 2013 and for the 19th time overall. He finished in 3:50:30.

Karl Hinett and Ivan Castro: The British and American war veterans both finished Boston in 5:11:55. Next, they are planning to run the London Marathon on Sunday. They are supported by Prince William, Duchess of Cambridge Kate, and Prince Harry as part of the Heads Together campaign to raise awareness for mental health issues.

Amby Burfoot: Winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon and a running hall of famer, Burfoot ran with the bib number 1968 and finished in 4:18:29.

Scott Jurek: Jurek, an ultrarunner who set the Appalachian Trail record, clocked a time of 4:23:34.

Dave McGillivray: The Boston Marathon race director crossed the finish line at a few minutes past 9 p.m. Monday. It was his 45th straight time running Boston. However, his finish time was not available on the BAA’s athlete tracker, probably because the timing system was turned off. McGillivray’s tradition is to run the marathon route himself after his work during the race itself is done.
