Maickel Melamed of Caracas crossed the finish line of the 26.2-mile race at about 1:30 a.m., surrounded by about 100 supporters, WMAQ-TV, Chicago, reported.
Although he was the last of more than 39,000 participants to finish the race, Melamed was happy he completed it.
"My message is: If you dream it, make it happen. Your life is the most beautiful thing that could happen to you. Make the best with that, and share the best of that," he said shortly after finishing the race. "We come here to share. We come here to make a team. We come here to construct the best world that the children -- our children -- deserve."
