The women's field features American contenders Molly Huddle, Jordan Hasay, Desiree Linden and reigning New York City Marathon champion Shalane Flanagan.No US woman has won the Boston crown since Lisa Larsen Weidenbach in 1985, although Linden was second in 2011 and Hasay took third previous year in her marathon debut as well as in Chicago.

Hasay, third in the race a year ago, was advised by her doctor and team on Sunday that she needed more time to recover fully so there would be no long-term injury, the marathon said in a statement.

"We support that decision and have invited Jordan to return to Boston next year".

According to a statement from Boston Marathon officials that was included in Hasay's tweet, an MRI conducted Sunday showed a stress reaction in the heel of her foot.

"It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from tomorrow's Boston Marathon", Hasay wrote.

"Despite my team working to give me every chance to make it to the starting line, I won't be able to join you".

"One of the runners that came with us out to Boston and is running with the Resiliency Center team she's running each mile for a different victim", Wallace said. "I wish my fellow competitors and everyone taking part the very best of luck and I look forward to toeing the line with them next year and for many years after that".

"We realize that we're not as you know far apart as we think we are you know", Wallace said.
