Statement from USATF CEO on the anniversary of the Boston Marathon tragedy


The Boston Marathon has always brought the running community together.  One year ago, innocent lives were lost, and scores more were changed forever, in a tragedy that affected the entire country and the world. Since that day, the Boston Marathon has become a galvanizing event and beacon of hope in the wake of terrible tragedy.

In a sport that unites rather than divides, USA Track & Field joins millions of others in observing the 1-year anniversary of this tragic event, even as we look forward to the renewal of spirit that the 2014 Boston Marathon promises.
