HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville’s running community honored those injured last year in Boston with a memorial race.
Several Rocket City runners went to the race last year and decided to go again this year. For those who stayed in Huntsville, they wanted to show their support.
“The running community is so strong and passionate about what we do, and we don’t want it to hold us back, and we want to keep everybody positive and encouraging, and just keep on going,” said Jill Hadley.
Tuesday’s memorial race started at Fleet Feet in Jones Valley at 5:30 p.m. It included a 3-mile or 5-mile race and fun run.
