Running his first Boston Marathon, Lawrence Cherono of Kenya won the men's competition in the closest finish in the men's race since 1988.

The 2019 Boston Marathon will be remembered for one of the most dramatic finishes in race history. The second place finisher, two-time victor Lelisa Desisa, finished one second slower, according to race officials.

Degefa's winning time of 2:23:31 was 42 seconds better than Edna Kiplagat of Kenya, who finished second. He placed 20th in his age group and 238th overall.

Cherono, Desisa and Kipkemoi made a move and remained locked together until the closing stages, with Cherono and Desisa kicking away and sprinting for the finish line.

A year after she withdrew from the Boston Marathon due to injury, Arroyo Grande native Jordan Hasay finished in third place at the marathon, according to a tweet from USA Track & Field.

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