In his first race since the Boston Marathon, Brian Harvey shook off the marathon dust and led the men’s team with a runner-up place in 24:19, seven seconds behind Team Run’s Jeffrey Vega. The margin of seven was also the difference in the team scoring with the men edging Team Run by a narrow margin of seven seconds. Eric Ashe trailed in 4th place (24:54), followed by Brad Mish (11th, 25:28), Sean Highland (21st, 25:54) and Nils Schallner (25th, 26:04) to close out the team scoring for the open men. Spring marathon training seems to be a good formula for shorter summer races with all five of the top B.A.A. scorers coming off solid Boston Marathon performances.

1920 - Ashland Start

The Boston Marathon began in Ashland, Massachusetts from 1897 through 1923 then moved to Hopkinton for the 1924 race. The course was lengthened to 26 miles, 385 yards to conform to the Olympic standard, and the starting line was moved west from Ashland to Hopkinton. Since then, the race has started in Hopkinton every year.
