Race Director Dave McGillivray Finishes Running His 50th Boston Marathon

BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray crossed the finish line on Boylston Street Monday night. It was the 50th Boston Marathon he's run.

Before the race, McGillivray told WBZ it was "ideal conditions" for runners.

"Hard to put into words, 50 years have gone by so fast," McGillivray said at the finish line. "But I have been blessed with being able to do a lot of this for charity, give back to a lot of different causes, and that's what I hope my legacy is someday. Being able to help those in need."

After working the race all day, McGillivray completed the run from Hopkinton to Boston.
