Today marks the the 127th Boston Marathon, and Northwestern Ontario is being represented.

The course runs just over 42 kilometres and will have runners seeking the best time as they make their way through the winding roads and hills which make up the greater Boston area.

Several residents from Dryden, Thunder Bay, Kenora and Red Lake will be among the nearly 30 thousand athletes participating.

Here is the list of those runners and start times (Eastern) where you might be able to find them:

Bib #      Wave/Corral   Name                        Age   Representing         Start Time
22483    3/7                    Komar, Sharon        56     Thunder Bay ON  10:50 a.m.
12746     2/5                    Latonas, Sarah        33     Thunder Bay ON  10:25 a.m.
10014     2/3                    Mcdonald, Ryan    49     Thunder Bay ON   10:25 a.m.

To search for an athlete you might know from the region or the rest of the world, you can use the search options for competitors found here.

On a sadder note, this year also marks the 10th anniversary of the 2013 bombing at the finish line, which killed three people and injured hundreds of others.
