One of the most spectacular Boston Marathon's in recent memory

The 2017 Boston Marathon will be remembered for its blue skies, warm weather, and a great head to head battle between Geoffrey Kurui and Galen Rupp.

Fast forward a year and...it was the coldest start to a Boston Marathon in 30 years. The temperature was the least of the concerns for runners, with 25 m/ph headwinds and driving rain also constant features of the day.

While the overwhelming favourites pre-race were Shalane Flanagan and Molly Huddle on the women's side, and Galen Rupp on the men's, the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boylston Street had other plans.
