Once again, Southborough will have a strong showing for the Boston Marathon.

Here’s the complete list of twenty residents – 12 men and 8 women – who will cross the starting line in Hopkinton this Patriot’s Day morning. (For those raising funds, I again included links to their fundraising pages.)

Please join me in wishing them the best on their 26.2-mile trek.
