2007 Boston Marathon: Final, Official Results – Registration for 2008 Boston Marathon to open in September

BOSTON – (July 13, 2007) – Official Finishers’ Certificates and copies of the Boston Marathon Racers’ Record Book, containing the official results of the 111th running of the Boston Marathon, were mailed to all 2007 participants this week.

Following the adjudication of results, there were 20,338 official finishers for the 2007 Boston Marathon, the second-highest total in event history, behind only the 100th running in 1996 which boasted 35,868 finishers. In total, based on the adjudication process, 17 individuals were removed from the 2007 Boston Marathon results and seven were added.

The most notable change to the results was the removal of seventh-place female Lyubov Denisova (RUS) as a result of a positive out-of-competition drug test. Denisova was found to have an elevated testosterone level and tested positive for Prostanozol in a test conducted on March 20, 2007. Denisova now faces a two-year ban from competition, and all results posted after the test have been invalidated.

Athletes who finished behind Denisova were moved up one place in the final standings, and prize money was reallocated based on the new results. The adjusted women’s top finishers are as follows:
