Test Your Knowledge About the Boston Marathon

Test Your Knowledge About the Boston Marathon If Bostonians had to pick one person to be the face of the Boston marathon, then it would be Johnny Kelley.

Kelley, who won the race twice, died at the age of 97
in 2004. He also finished second a record seven times and in 18 races he placed in the Top 10.

''He was the Boston Marathon," four-time Boston Marathon winner Bill Rodgers said.

Kelley won in both 1935 and 1945. His victory in '35 came on Good Friday and although it was held in front of just about 300,000 spectators, he considered it his "sweetest" win.

How many marathons did Kelley run in his lifetime?
