Thousands in Boston run 'OneRun,' mile they missed on April 15 Marathon due to Islamic massacre










5/25/13, "Thousands Run Final Mile Of Boston Marathon," Boston.cbslocal.com

"On April 15, explosions near the finish line killed three people and wounded more than 260.

On Saturday morning, about 3,000 runners and bombing victims gathered in light rain to run the final mile of the world’s oldest annual marathon, said Kathleen McGonagle, spokeswoman for those organizing the event known as OneRun.

OneRun honors victims and emergency workers and allows runners to reclaim the final mile, McGonagle said.

“For the runner that didn’t get the chance to finish the marathon, this is the chance for them to experience the final mile that was taken away from them,” McGonagle said....Another finisher was Jarrod Clowery who had had three friends who lost limbs in the attack."...photo, toucher and rich via cbs boston
