Below, all of the pre-race coverage - still as interesting as when we wrote it.
Despite the recent news that both top Kenyan four-time Boston Marathon champions Robert Kipkoech Cheruiyot and Catherine Ndereba had withdrawn from the 114th edition of the event due to injuries, there will be plenty of excitement in both the men and women's races
The men's race holds promise for the first American victory since 1983 with 2004 Athens Olympics silver medalist and 2009 New York City Marathon champion Meb Keflezighi and 2008 Beijing Games Olympian Ryan Hall in top form. They will have to contend with a loaded field including 2009 defending champion Deriba Merga, perennial frontrunner Abderrahim Goumri, newcomer Gilbert Yegon and one of the fastest men in the field, Evans Cheruiyot to name a few. The women's race will feature a field including nine sub 2:26 runners of which three are past Boston champions - Salina Kosgei (2009), Dire Tune (2008) and Lidiya Grigoryeva (2007) - and a rematch between Kosgei and Tune who finished one-two in the closest sprint finish in Boston Marathon history.
