An American woman hasn't won the Boston Marathon since Lisa Larsen Rainsberger in 1985.

The US challenge in a race that is the seventh event in the 2017-2018 Abbott World Marathon Majors Series XI will be led by Flanagan, who six months ago, at the age of 36, became the first American woman to win the New York City Marathon.

"This is my 7th time running Boston", Wallace said.

American runner Jordan Hasay, who finished third among women at last year's Boston Marathon and was seen as a contender this year, announced on Twitter that she has withdrawn from tomorrow's race because of a foot injury.

Huddle has been a success at shorter distances, although her only marathon result was a third-place finish at NY in 2016.Flanagan, 36, missed last year's race with an injury but won at NY with extra rest.

Hasay, New York City Marathon victor Shalane Flanagan and fellow Americans Desiree Linden and Molly Huddle had been expected to challenge Kenyan defending champion Edna Kiplagat to end the nation's 33-year wait for a home victor in the women's race.

Due to stagnant wages and rising rents, family homelessness in Boston has increased 34% in the past four years alone.

The Kirui-Rupp rematch figures to be a great one on the men's side. "Boston is a big race, and I wanted to be ready".

More recently Rupp has become only the second United States runner to break the hour mark for the half-marathon.

On April 15, 2013, three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the race.
