Ryan Hall sets new American record for the Boston Marathon

April 18, 2011

Ryan Hall in the 2007 London Marathon

Ryan Hall, one of Mammoth’s great distance runners, on Monday set a new American record for the Boston Marathon.

Hall, formerly a member of the Mammoth Track Club but who still trains here, ran the 26 miles in 2:04:55.

It is not a formally recognized record because the Boston Marathon is a kind of an odd duck in marathon circles, not quite conforming to world or national standards.

He led for much of the race before being overtaken near the end.

More to come as details roll in.
