Four area runners — two each from Findlay and Bowling Green — have completed a very rainy and cold 2018 Boston Marathon.
Those runners, and their times, are:
- Jackie Gast, of Findlay, finished with a time of 3:18:36
- Christopher Roberts, of Findlay, finished with a time of 3:38:58
- Amy Craft Ahrens, of Bowling Green, finished with a time of 4:09:48
- Chris Dilbone, of Bowling Green, finished with a time of 3:08:49
Desiree Linden, from Washington Township, Michigan, won the women’s race with a time of 2:39:54. She became the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon since 1985.
In the men’s race, Japan’s Yuki Kawauchi surged in the last mile to win his first major marathon title with a time of 2:15:58.
