Local Runners Escape Injury In Boston Marathon Tragedy

April 16, 2013

A number of local runners took part in the running of the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Several consolidated reports indicate that all escaped injury in the bombings that killed three people and injured at least others.

Among the 27,000 or so runners competing in Boston were Jeff McVay, from Oil City, Patti Henderson, from Titusville, and Mark Courtney, from Grove City.  All had finished the 26.2 mile course before the deadly explosions, which occurred about three-and-a-half hours after Ethiopian runner Lelisa Desisa took first place, but with most of the recreational entrants still competing.

Meanwhile, officials are already studying ways to increase security for the upcoming Pittsburgh Marathon.  The race is scheduled for May 5.
