Black Hawk helicopters fly over Boston Marathon route

Massachusetts

BOSTON (AP) — Two Black Hawk helicopters flew over the route of the Boston Marathon on Monday to wrap up a virtual event in which thousands of runners completed 26.2 miles on their own.

The helicopters will fly the route from the starting line in Hopkinton to the finish line on Boylston Street in Boston to mark the end of the virtual race week and honor health care workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

The marathon normally is run on a Monday in April but was postponed to Sept. 14 because of the pandemic. At the end of May, it was canceled altogether.
