One week ago today, as runners were finishing up the Boston Marathon, two bombs went off, three lives were lost and fear gripped a nation.

Local runners will be participating in 'Runners for Boston' a nationwide run in support of those effected. The 2.62 mile run is being hosted by the Tuscaloosa Track Club and will start at 6:30 in front of Wagner's RunWalk in Midtown Village. There will also be a one mile walk option and no entry fee.

We have proven that we can come together as a community in the wake of our own tragedy and now is the time we can show that again.
