In an exciting finish, Lawrence Cherono of Kenya won the Boston Marathon by a single second second on Monday.

Schulte, 40, was first to arrive at the finish line on Boylston Street, in a time of 2 hours, 36 minutes and eight seconds.

The 2019 Boston Marathon will be remembered for one of the most dramatic finishes in race history.

Other Maine runners with notable times were Robert Ashby, 50, of Brunswick, who placed third in his age group and 294th overall in 2:38:23; Evan Graves, 37, of Caribou in 2:44:20; and Julian Gazzelloni, 27, of Belgrade in 2:44:52.

Cherono narrowly edged ahead to add victory in Boston to his 2:04:06 PB and course record victory at the Amsterdam Marathon in October, as Desisa was denied a third Boston win to go with his titles from 2013 and 2015.

Seven American runners finished in the top 20 of the men's race, with Scott Fauble leading the way in seventh place.

Kipkemoi was third in 2:08:07, while Kenya's Felix Kandie was fourth in 2:08:54 and Kirui fifth in 2:08:55.

The elite women's race was a different story.
