Dartmouth native Denise Robson will vie for the top women’s masters time at the Boston Marathon today.

Robson, who shattered Canada’s 40-and-older women’s marathon record last November, will be one of more than 100 Nova Scotians participating in the 113th annual event.

The 40-year-old was 11th among women at last year’s Boston Marathon with a time of 2:45:54. That’s well under the 2:47:17 that was the top masters time last year.

Halifax’s Rami Bardeesy, who was 69th overall last year, Enfield’s Harry Neynens and two-time reigning Blue Nose Marathon champ Leah Jabbour are among the other entrants.
