The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) extends its deepest sympathies to all those who were affected by Monday's tragic events. Those who lost their lives and were injured are in our thoughts and prayers.

It is a sad day for the City of Boston, for the running community, and for all those who were here to enjoy the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. What was intended to be a day of joy and celebration quickly became a day in which running a marathon was of little importance.

Boston Marathon: The Aftermath

Where do I begin? The Boston Marathon is one of Hopkinton’s biggest news events, and, as a reporter and local media person since 2004, I have been covering the marathon for several years. I still remember my first year at the start line with an official press pass as a reporter for the Hopkinton Independent and the thrill of being allowed to mix and mingle with the big media outlets. Being in Hopkinton at the start line is a unique experience for anyone, but holds particular meaning for those of us who live here, even if we are not runners.

We can confirm that all of the remaining runners who were out on the course when the tragic events unfolded have been returned to a community meeting area.
