Van Dyk finishes 5th at Boston Marathon

Geoffrey Kirui of Kenya leads the pack during the 123rd Boston Marathon on Monday

Kenya's Lawrence Cherono led home the men's race in 2:07.57 with his compatriot Kenneth Kipkemoi in third behind Lelisa Desisa Benti from Ethiopia. The second place finisher, two-time victor Lelisa Desisa, finished one second slower, according to race officials.

Fauble and fellow American Jared Ward were also in the top 10, clocking 2:09:09 and 2:09:25 in seventh and eighth respectively.
