Boilermaker officials will review security plan
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - As a result of the attacks at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, Boilermaker officials plan to review the race's security plans.
Not counting spectators, the Boston Marathon attracts 27,000 runners. The Boilermaker draws 18,000, with the 15K and 5K races combined, plus the tens of thousands that gather for the post-race party.
Road races are a tough security challenge because the courses cover many miles and are not a contained event.
