A Cinnaminson resident will run in the Boston Marathon, set for Monday, according to the Boston Marathon's official website.

Tom Elliott, 41, is among the 36,000 runners set to run in the 118th annual event. Elliott finished the Philadelphia Marathon in 1:17.14 last year, and 1:16.44 in 2012.

Last year’s Boston Marathon was marred by two explosions at the finish line that injured about 140 runners.

On Tuesday night, a man was arrested and charged with planting a hoax device after two backpacks were found near the finish line following a tribute marking the one-year anniversary of the tragedy.

Established in 1897, the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest marathon and features professional and amateur runners from all over the world.

The race begins at 8:30 a.m. Monday.
