Reporter’s Note: Boston Marathon Bombing ‘Feels Like Yesterday’

The Boston Marathon, now in its 127th year, brings together the world’s best long-distance runners in the city of Massachusetts to triumph in the world’s oldest annual marathon event.

This year’s edition has a special meaning as it marks the 10th anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, a domestic terrorist attack in 2013 that killed three people and injured hundreds. A marathon held in honor of Patriot Day in the United States remembers the bombings and commemorates the fallen in military marches.

Once the memorial service is complete, the men’s, women’s and wheelchair fields will take on the challenging 26.2-mile course where men’s marathon world record holder Eliud Kipchoge will compete in Boston for the first time.

Many recreational runners then try to survive the course. Around 30,000 people are expected to start the race, with thousands more cheering along the roadside.

Follow the blog below for all the latest from the event.

Eliud Kipchoge has perfectly set the pace for the men’s elite field after 49 minutes of racing. Kipchoge leads the lead group with just over 11 men.

He came into the marathon with hope and determination to win, and so far I respect the job.

It’s an amazingly dominating performance by the Swiss who broke his own Boston Marathon record. It was his sixth win here and smashing his previous record with his time of 1:17:06, almost a minute faster than his record in 2016.

In sharp contrast to the elite race of men, the elite women have opted for early warning as their modus operandi.

A massive lead pack made it through the first mile in a solid 6:09.
