Boston Marathon results: Complete list of 2019 winners

Jordan Hasay finishes third in Boston Marathon — after a year of injuries | San Luis Obispo Tribune

It was the first time he finished a marathon in under 2 hours, 10 minutes.

Kenya's Lawrence Cherono led home the men's race in 2:07.57 with his compatriot Kenneth Kipkemoi in third behind Lelisa Desisa Benti from Ethiopia. The second place finisher, two-time victor Lelisa Desisa, finished one second slower, according to race officials.

USA's Jordan Hasay was third in 2:25:20, Ethiopia's Meskerem Assefa fourth in 2:25:40 and defending champion Desiree Linden fifth in 2:27:00.

Desisa, who won the Boston Marathon in 2013 and 2015, simply ran out of gas.

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

In the Sun Journal's tri-county coverage area, Kyle Simmons of Lewiston was the fastest finisher through the 26.2 miles with a time of 2:50:22. He placed 20th in his age group and 238th overall. Degefa's winning time of 2:23:31 was 42 seconds better than Edna Kiplagat of Kenya, who finished second. But it's still a competition, and a little late-race drama among elite athletes certainly doesn't hurt the viewing experience.
