The only other number retired was John Kelley's No. 61 after he ran 61 Boston Marathons, finishing his last in 1992 at the age of 84 with a time of 5:58:36. She finished the race in four hours and 20 minutes, but would later be disqualified and expelled from the Amateur Athletic Union.

"No dame ever ran the Boston Marathon", Arnie Briggs told Switzer when she was a 19-year-old journalism student that transferred to Syracuse from Lynchburg College in the mid-1960s.

"When you are the champion, the next year, the appearance fees, the contracts, everything" is more lucrative, the two-time New York City Marathon runner-up said this week.

For the women, Gladys Cherono, of Kenya, who will be making her Boston Marathon debut, 2014 Boston Marathon victor Buzunesh Deba, of Ethiopia, and Desi Linden, of the United States of America, who finished second in 2011. Evans played critical roles in the initial response, investigation and ensuing manhunt for the bombers.

"I just feel like we're back to putting on a road race", he said.

Russian-born American Tatyana McFadden, the four-time defending champion in the women's wheelchair division, finished in fourth place with a time of 1:35:05. A year later, on the starting line of the 1973 Boston Marathon, the race official who had attacked Switzer gave her a kiss.

He'll create the memorial markers on Boylston Street where bombs killed three spectators and wounded more than 260 others. "There's no intelligence but we live in a new world where there these are the things that they have to take into consideration", said marathon survivor, Heather Abbott. American Jordon Hasay also made a splash as the first American woman to finish and third overall - despite it being her first marathon.

Patriots' Day? It was more like Kenyan Day at the Boston Marathon.

"Kathrine was not the first woman to win Boston", said the victor of that first Olympic marathon, Joan Benoit Samuelson of Freeport, "but because of the strength of those photos, Kathrine has had the opportunity to do a lot for women in sport and women in distance running". "But she took it from me".

This year, Sanchez ran the entire race holding an American flag on his shoulder.

Switzer is one of the most influential women in distance running, but is often left out of the pantheon of world-changing sporting achievements.

"What was a dramatic incident 50 years ago became instead a defining moment for me and women runners", Switzer said in announcing her return to Boston.

"What I didn't realize was that the training would be the worst part", she said.
