The 2014 Boston Marathon begins Monday morning, and millions have gathered in a show of support given the tragic events that occurred a year ago.

The 2013 race was marred by a bombing that killed three and left hundreds injured. Security has been beefed up for this year's event, and the city expects a record turnout.

This page will be updated throughout the day, so follow along as the race unfolds. The elite women's race will begin shortly after 9 a.m. ET, with the elite men starting around 10.

The race kicked off at 8:50 a.m. following a moment of silence.
