In an exciting finish, Lawrence Cherono of Kenya won the Boston Marathon by a single second second on Monday. The second place finisher, two-time victor Lelisa Desisa, finished one second slower, according to race officials.

Following Simmons were fellow Lewiston residents Alan Groudle, whose time of 2:57:32 was good enough for 2,078th, and Dan Pontbriand, who finished in 2:57:48 as the 2,125th finisher.

Cherono narrowly edged ahead to add victory in Boston to his 2:04:06 PB and course record victory at the Amsterdam Marathon in October, as Desisa was denied a third Boston win to go with his titles from 2013 and 2015.
