In the 116th Annual Boston Marathon, we have an official record.

In the Men's Wheelchair Division, Joshua Cassidy has finished as the winner with a time of 1:18:25. The Canadian set the record on a day that is expected to reach record temperatures in Boston, 86 degrees being the predicted high for the afternoon.
