25,000 To Participate In Boston Marathon

More than 25,000 runners are expected under cool overcast skies Monday for the 113th running of the Boston Marathon, the 26.2-mile race from Hopkinton to Boston that has been dominated by elite African runners in recent years.
Defending champion Robert Cheruiyot, of Kenya, will go for his fifth Boston Marathon title, and Dire Tune, of Ethiopia, will try to repeat as the women's winner in Monday's race.
Ryan Hall and Kara Goucher are the top U.S. man and woman in their respective fields - contenders for titles that haven't gone to an American in decades.
