The Boston Athletic Association has selected 32 runners — 16 boys and 16 girls — from the eight cities along the marathon route for the BAA Invitational Mile.

The event will be held 9:30 a.m. Sunday April 18 at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and will include last year's winner and Globe All-Scholastic Margo Gillis.

"As part of our ongoing commitment to the cities and towns that so graciously host the Boston Marathon, the scholastic mile races are just one way the BAA showcases the running talent that resides within them,” said Guy Morse, executive director of the BAA in a press release. “In addition to the professional races, our scholastic athletes will help Marathon spectators get into the running spirit for the 114th Boston Marathon."

Runners were selected from Hopkinton, Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, Newton, Brookline and Boston
