B.A.A. Moment 2

1996 - Centennial Boston Marathon

The starting field of 38,708 for the centennial race stood for more than seven years as the largest in the history of the sport. Included among the finishers were 16 Boston champions. The historic 100th Boston Marathon was monumental for another reason. It was the first time that a chip timing and scoring device was used in a major US Marathon.
