Western states and Washington, D.C. are overrepresented at Monday’s Boston marathon.

New England states, of course, lead the field in per capita runners entered for the race Monday, though Utah stands out as the only non-New England state to join that pack, according to calculations based on official statistics from the Boston Athletic Association, which hosts the Boston marathon. (Note: The stats mentioned here reflect the number of people who entered the marathon. Data for how many people started and finished were not yet available online as of Monday evening.)

As the host state, Massachusetts is far and away the leader, with 8,129 runners entered for the marathon or 12.1 for every 10,000 residents. New Hampshire is next with 4.3 runners per 10,000 residents, followed by Washington, D.C. with 3.5. Vermont, Rhode Island and Maine come next, followed by Utah and Connecticut, each of which has 1.6 runners per 10,000 residents entered in Monday’s race.

The next states with the highest per capita runners are Colorado and Oregon, each sending 1.2 per capita runners. Minnesota follows with 1.1 and then come Washington state, Virginia and Maryland with 1 runner per 10,000 residents.
