Thomas Paquette, now a five-time winner, took the men's crown in a time of 1:13:19. Women's winner Chloe Maleski took the top spot by crossing the finish line with a time of 1:24:08.
Two Bay State runners won the full marathon. Conor Sleith of Waltham, Mass., won the men's full marathon in 2:28:42. Anna Steinman of Springfield, Mass., won the women's full in 2:53:41.
