Boston, Mass. — Monday marked the 120th edition of the Boston Marathon. There was a total of 30,743 registered runners to take on the challenging 26.2- mile course through one of the nation's most historic cities. Out of those 30,743 runners, 422 were from New Hampshire. In comparison to last year's marathon stats, it was interesting to track our Granite Staters throughout the course of the race.
For our New Hampshire men, Newmarket resident and former University of New Hampshire student, Aliaksandr Leuchanka took the lead again completing the race with a time of 2 hours and 32 minutes. This is the second year in a row that Leuchanka placed No. 1 for both men and women of the state - where he also came in first place during the 2015 Boston Marathon.
New Hampshire's Fan Zhou came in at a close second with a time of 2 hours and 37 minutes. NH1 would like to recognize and congratulate our male runners with a job well done! Check out who made New Hampshire's top 5 for the men's division below:
5). Eric McDonald (02:46:47) 306th among Men - 323rd overall
4). Louis Saviano (02:44:08) 222nd - 236th
3). David Gervais (02:43:05) 185th - 199th
