The father-son team of Dick and Rick Hoyt has crossed the Boylston Street finish line for the last time.
After years of running together, the inspiring duo completed their 32nd and final Boston Marathon on Monday.
Dick, 73, has been pushing son Rick, 51, in a special wheelchair in races for most of the past four decades. Rick has cerebral palsy, leaving him unable to use his legs and hands. The two had planned for last year’s marathon to be their last, but the bombings convinced them to do one more run.
While someone from Team New England will take over to push Rick in next year’s marathon, this was the final 26.2-mile journey for Dick.
Check out photos below of the incredible team finishing their marathon journey together.
