Boston Marathon 2011.

Will be run Monday 18th April, Patriots Day in the US. The most "serious" marathon of the World Majors. Qualifying times and a limit of 28,000 athletes. A Kenyan and/or an Ethopian has won the race for the past 20 years. The last non African runner to win was Italian, Bordin in 1990. Australian Robert de Castella won it in 1986 in a course record at the time. He was also the first person to win prizemoney for the race. This years winners, win $150,000 cash for both male and female. Everyone is primed, this is not a "fun run", it is full of serious qualifiers. Bondy looks strong !........
