Rita Jeptoo has set a Boston Marathon record with a time of 2:18:57, the eighth fastest marathon time ever.

Ernst van Dyk, South African six-time Paralympian, has won the men’s wheelchair race for the 10th year in a row.

Tatyana McFadden, a three-time Paralympian, has won the wheelchair race for the women.

The last wave of runners have started the race. There are many runners who were unable to finish last year that are running in the last group.

If Rita Jeptoo continues her current pace, she could set a Boston Marathon record, finishing the marathon in under two and a half hours.

This year’s marathon features a considerably higher police presence.
