#BostonStrong: Golfers Show Support for Marathon Runners

Just a year after the tragic Boston Marathon bombing, nearly 36,000 runners took part in Monday’s race, the second-largest field ever. Meb Keflezighi took home the men’s title with a time of 2:08:37, the first American man to win since 1983. On the women’s side, we saw a repeat. Rita Jeptoo of Kenya collected her second title in as many years, setting a women’s course record of 2:18:57.

Several golfers, including Gary Player and Rickie Fowler, showed their support for all those running in the marathon this year.

 
On April 12, more than 3,000 enthusiastic Bostonians came together on the Boston Marathon finish line to show their “Boston Strong” for the cover of this week’s Sports Illustrated, on newsstands now:
