A number of runners from Dorchester plugged along and made it through the Boston Marathon’s 26 miles and 385 yards of winding road from Hopkinton to Boylston Street as temperatures hit the mid-70s on an unseasonably warm Monday holiday. 

The 100-member Team MR8 raised $917,431 for the Martin Richard Foundation, with local members compiling decent times: Eoin Cannon, finishing in (4:29:43, led the troupe, followed by John Delano (4:46:46), Pat Doherty (4:55:52), Dianne Lescinskas (5:16:33), Michael McCarthy (4:40:40), Rachel Moo (5:27:22), Kathleen Mullen (5:44:17), Cailin Pagel (4:27:21), Patrick Ryan (5:04:47), Talia Siravo (5:23:43), Jack Wu (4:19:42), Laura and Peter Oggeri (5:19:58 and 5:02:58), Pat Brophy (4:46:54), Derek Mourad (5:06:59), and Steve Wilkins (6:02:20).

Dorchester native and boxer Michelle Egan crossed the line in 4:22:01. Steven Farrell and Todd Robinson, a Dorchester couple who were featured in the Reporter several weeks ago, hit the tape together, Farrell at 4:39:21 and Robinson just two seconds behind.
