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.READ MORE: Police Search Woods After Man Fired BB Gun Behind Salem Walmart
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.
