Schulte, 40, was first to arrive at the finish line on Boylston Street, in a time of 2 hours, 36 minutes and eight seconds. He placed 20th in his age group and 238th overall.

Brockett, 23, came across a little more than 10 minutes later in 2:46:54. She was 57th among all women and 786th overall.

Cape Elizabeth native Joan Benoit Samuelson, 61, celebrating the 40th anniversary of her championship 1979 debut at Boston while a senior at Bowdoin College, once again wore a Bowdoin singlet and covered the familiar 26.2 miles in 3:04:00 – well within her goal of finishing within 40 minutes of her time (2:35:15) 40 years ago.

Not surprisingly, she won her age group.

Other Maine runners with notable times were Robert Ashby, 50, of Brunswick, who placed third in his age group and 294th overall in 2:38:23; Evan Graves, 37, of Caribou in 2:44:20; and Julian Gazzelloni, 27, of Belgrade in 2:44:52.
