Jordan Hasay finishes third in Boston Marathon - after a year of injuries

Registration for the 2020 Boston Marathon will likely open in September, according to the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.).

Defending women's champion and former Arizona State runner Desiree Linden finished fifth overall Monday, and Flagstaff native Scott Fauble was the top American man, finishing seventh overall.

Woknesh Degefa ran alone for the last 20 miles winning the women's race.

Yuki Kawauchi, of Japan, won the race in 2018.


The 2019 Boston Marathon will be remembered for one of the most dramatic finishes in race history.

Other Maine runners with notable times were Robert Ashby, 50, of Brunswick, who placed third in his age group and 294th overall in 2:38:23; Evan Graves, 37, of Caribou in 2:44:20; and Julian Gazzelloni, 27, of Belgrade in 2:44:52. His previous personal-best was 2 hours, 12 minutes last November in the New York City Marathon.

A grueling 26.2-mile Boston Marathon men's elite race came down to the final seconds and a sprint to the finish line, which Kenya's Lawrence Cherono won to edge Ethiopia's Lelisa Desisa Benti to capture the men's elite title.
