Who was the youngest person to run the Boston Marathon and at what age?

Two people of note for their age in the Boston Marathon according to Runner's world:Ageless Wonder I: Clarence DeMar ran the Boston Marathon 32 times. In addition to his seven wins, he had eight other top-10 finishes. His fastest times were 2:18:10 over the 25-mile course in 1922 and 2:29:40 over the lengthened course two years later.Ageless Wonder II: DeMar was 65 when he ran his last Boston Marathon, but at that age John A. Kelley was just warming up. Kelley's remarkable marathon career spanned eight decades. Beginning in 1928 and ending in 1992, he started Boston 61 times, failing to finish on only three of those occasions. He won Boston twice, took second seven times and finished in the top-10 18 times. Six of those top-10 finishes came after the age of 40, one after 50.

Did Sarah Palin's father Chuck legally run the Boston Marathon?

How would a person illegally run a marathon? Assuming he did not get money for doing so, why worry about it? To qualify for the Boston Marathon, you have to qualify in a marathon that is sanctioned by the Boston Marathon Association. Once you have qualified, you may enter the Boston Marathon. It is the only one that requires a qualifying time in order to enter. Many runners train hard to make the qualification time and are frustrated if someone jumps in the course and runs it illegally. There is no money involved, just hard, honest training.
