HOPKINTON, Mass. (AP) — The Boston Marathon returned to its springtime spot for the first time since the pandemic began.

Race Director Dave McGillivray sent a group of about 20 from the Massachusetts National Guard out at 6 a.m., announcing the start of the 126th Boston Marathon in Hopkinton.

And the 2021 version was postponed, then held in October.

More than 28,000 runners were signed up for Monday.
