Tooele Community to Honor Boston Marathon Victims

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - People in the Tooele Valley are planning to honor the three people killed and the more than 200 injured one year ago at the Boston Marathon finish line.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - Members of the Tooele Running Club are organizing a free community wide walk/run/bike event to honor the three people killed and the more than 200 injured one year ago at the Boston Marathon finish line.

It will take place on Monday, April 21st at 7:30 p.m. at Tooele City's England Acres.  The event begins at the pavilion of the city's 25-acre park, located at 880 North 400 East.

Participants will walk, run or bike the .75 mile perimeter three times in honor of those who were killed in last year's marathon bombings.

Organizers have dubbed the event “We Run (This Town) Together,” by merging the themes of this year’s Boston Marathon and the Tooele Running Club moniker.

A brief program, that includes the reading of letter from Gov. Gary R. Herbert, will be held at the England Acres pavillion at the start of the event. Refreshments will be provided and Shellimark Entertainment of Tooele will provide sound and entertainment.

An alternative three-mile route will be outlined in conjunction with the “We Run (This Town) Together” event for runners desiring a longer run. Please wear refl ective gear if you plan on running that route.

The Tooele Running Club holds training runs of varying distances every Saturday morning in Grantsville, Stansbury Park or Tooele. Throughout the month of May, “Couch to 5K” clinics will also be held on Saturdays at 9 am. All abilities and paces are welcome to the weekly group runs as well as the “Couch to 5k” clinics.

Details can be found on at the website: Tooele Running Club and on Facebook at Tooele Running Club.
