Runner #8 was in the lead of the Country Music Marathon on both North End legs (to and from MetroCenter). Amos Matui eventually won the whole shooting match.
I cannot give you the name of #8 because the marathon's live update page (which promised never to fail to bring us up-to-date results) has been failing to bring us live reports all morning. Google Chrome says the link to liveraceresults.com is broken. Mozilla Firefox just balks at trying to locate it.
