04/17/1978

Short interviews with runners at start line of Boston Marathon in Hopkinton on why they entered: John Dorice of Michigan, Raul Romero and Mitch Feingold of San Diego, Dusty Burke of Houston. Several helicopters circle overhead. Shots of legs and track shoes. Runners packed together awaiting start. John (The Elder) Kelley, wearing Cape Cod Track Club shirt, at start line. Mass of spectators, some up in trees; many wear parkas on this chilly day.
