BOSTON — Officials had their eyes on who would be the fastest Bostonian running in the 127th Boston Marathon for both the men’s and women’s divisions.
Mayor Michelle Wu announced Vinny Castronuovo, 23, of South End, took home the title of fastest Bostonian. Castronuovo, a mechanical engineering graduate student at Northeastern University, finished the race with a time of 2:25:56. He completed his second Boston Marathon and set a personal record.
Shannon Lamarre, 28, of Charlestown, finished with a time of 2:54:34. She is an environmental engineer and a member of the Greater Boston Track Club. Lamarre ran her fifth Boston Marathon and also set a personal record.
This is also the first year the Boston Marathon has a category for non-binary runners, and one Boston resident made history running in this category. The City and the B.A.A. will recognize Danielle Bishop, who finished the race in 3:32:29, as the first Bostonian to participate in the race registered as non-binary.
Bishop is a 28-year-old Allston resident running in their fifth Boston Marathon.
Boston Mayor Michelle Wu and the Boston Athletic Association announced Monday that these three runners will be honored by the city in the coming days.
“We are thrilled to celebrate three Bostonians who exemplify the spirit of the Boston Marathon,” said Mayor Michelle Wu. “Each of these athletes ran an incredible race. I’m grateful to the B.A.A for joining with the City of Boston to recognize the incredible talent right here in our neighborhoods that is part of what makes this the greatest race in the world.
