Tulsa-Area Runners Honor Victims of Boston Marathon Bombings

Posted: Updated:

"It's very sad. I feel for the victims and the families," says runner Glen Hall.

Dozens of Tulsa-area runners gathered at 41st and Riverside Tuesday night for a Remembrance Run, honoring the victims of Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon.

"For terrorists to come in there and do what they did yesterday, it's just tragic," adds Judy Bomer who ran in the Boston Marathon in 2000 and 2012.

Adults and kids took part in the run as they all thought about the national tragedy.

"We're all a big community. We're all a big family, all of us runners," says runner Kelton Doremus. "We have a lot of respect for each other. And you know, when it hurts one of us, it hurts us all."

Security will be tighter for Tulsa running events this weekend, including the Color Run.

More than 30,000 people are expected to turn out for four separate races.

Tulsa Police will increase their presence this year.

KTUL.com has learned they will have bomb techs and canines out searching the venues.

But police say everyone needs to be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity.
