Kenyan Boston Marathon Runners Honored At Hopkinton’s Elmwood School

HOPKINTON (CBS) – A group of elite Kenyan runners in town for the Boston Marathon kept tradition Thursday with their annual visit to the Elmwood School in Hopkinton.

About 600 screaming second and third graders greeted the runners with a rock star-like rally in the school gym.

It’s the 22nd year of the Scholars and Stars Program at Elmwood.

Students spend part of the school year learning about Kenyan culture and traditions, as well as Swahili, in the weeks leading up to the race.
