Run for Boston

What: Run to show support and solidarity for those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings

When: Saturday at 11:00

Where: Starting near Angel’s Cafe in the west end of Edworthy Park


“It’s just a fun run to show support and unity as a running community toward those affected in Boston because it was such a tragic event,”

“No one should have to go through what they did, especially after running a marathon, which is probably the toughest competition on the body." ~ Trevor Hofbauer, Event Planner

    Great turn out (runners, walkers, children and dogs alike)! The weather did not spoil the spontaneous atmosphere.

    I did go for a run last night just to get it out of my system. What a sad day for the human race :( Thanks for organizing Becky - I already have plans this sat cannot be there in person.
