North Benn's Russell leads local Marathon contigent

BOSTON — All six local competitors in Monday's Boston Marathon finished the race, helped by near perfect conditions for the 26.2-mile event.

The top finisher was North Bennington's Emily Russell in 3 hours, 26 minutes and 57 seconds. Out of nearly 30,000 runners to start the Marathon, Russell finished 6,253rd overall.

Of that group, 12,379 women started — and Russell finished 1,161st, in the top 10 percent of female runners in Boston.

Peru's Tiffany Teaford was the second quickest local runner, finishing in 3 hours, 51 minutes and 21 seconds.

Cambridge's Roy Headwell also finished under four hours, completing the course in 3:58:44.

Stamford's John Dupras was just over the four-hour mark, finishing in 4:02.17. Buskirk's Jill Koziol finished in 4:12:47.

Readsboro's Jan Rancatti completed his 28th consecutive Boston Marathon, finishing the course in 4 hours, 19 minutes and 33 seconds.

Eighty-six Vermonters started and 80 finished, while 1,347 New Yorkers completed the course — the third most from any state behind Massachusetts and California.
