BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Athletic Association said 99-percent of the runners who started the 2014 Boston Marathon went the distance and finished it.
“The one word I have to describe it all – epic,” race director Dave McGillivray told reporters Tuesday at a post-race news conference.
McGillivray said the spirit on display throughout the event proved it will not be defined by the 2013 bombings.
“We will never see this again, this was a race for the ages for sure,” he said.
