Boston-04/13/2019 Boylston Street at the Boston Marathon finish line is packd with people as thousands came out to take

Worknesh Degefa and Lawrence Cherono stormed to Boston Marathon success on Monday, with the women's title won after an impressive solo run and the men's race ending in an exciting sprint finish. The one-second margin of victory was the race's closest finish since 1988 with Cherono clocking an unofficial 2:07:59 and Desisa clocking a 2:08:00.

Registration for the 2020 Boston Marathon will likely open in September, according to the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.).

Yuki Kawauchi, of Japan, won the race in 2018.

Last year's second-place finisher, full-time nurse Sarah Sellers of Tucson, also improved her time from last year but finished 19th.

DuChene competed in her first Boston Marathon in 2005, and finished the race in about three hours. He placed 20th in his age group and 238th overall.

American Jordan Hasay was third with a time of 2:25:20. McCormack finished in 11th with a time of 2:30.38. But it's still a competition, and a little late-race drama among elite athletes certainly doesn't hurt the viewing experience.
