Runners to Show Support for Marathon Victims Monday Evening

Among the gifts placed at the Boston Marathon memorial site are running shoes and medals.

Runners in more than 100 cities and towns across America are participating in group runs Monday evening to show their support for Boston Marathon bombing victims.

The runners were inspired by a blogger, Brian Kelley (Pavement Runner) who is organizing a #BostonStrong event for runners in San Francisco, and who has invited others to do the same in their towns.

As of midday Monday, people in 115 cities and towns across America had created Facebook event pages for their respective towns. Others, including a handful of local moms in Wakefield who write a weekly parenting column for Patch.com, have organized their own informal events to show their support.

“I feel like I need to do something. Something more than a donation. Something more than a blog post or a photo or a graphic,” Kelley wrote on his Pavement Runner blog. “I’m inspired by the community and how we have come together and shown our support, shed our tears, and expressed our fears.” read more

The Boston Athletic Association said runners may pick up their bags between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday at 130 Columbus Ave. Some runners have reported that they are also handing out medals, but the BAA could not confirm this.

Just before noon, the Boston Athletic Association posted the following on its Facebook page: 

First, we again want to express our sympathy to all of the victims and our gratitude to the first responders of yesterday’s explosions. 

We’re working with the City of Boston to re-open streets that have been cleared from the investigation as quickly as possible. As such, the runners’ bags that were being picked up on Berkeley Street are now being moved to “The Castle” at 101 Arlington Street (at Stuart St.) and will be available until 7:00 p.m. tonight. 

Later today, we’ll have updates on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday pick-up. 

The finish line remains an active crime scene. We ask that our runners and the public please cooperate with the law enforcement agencies in the area for as long as our collective cooperation is requested.  read more
