Desiree Davila Linden
Five former winners have committed to run this year’s Boston Marathon.
The first American man to win the Boston Marathon in over 30 years will be back in 2015 to defend his crown.
About 36,000 runners have waited a full year for this day. Now it’s time to finally run the 118th Boston Marathon.
Desiree Linden returns to Boston ready to race and seek the title. In 2011 she narrowly missed winning by two seconds.
The deepest women’s and men’s teams in years were announced Tuesday by race sponsor John Hancock Financial.
