The Latest: Wheelchair race is off at wet Boston Marathon
BOSTON (AP) — The Latest on the Boston Marathon (all times local):
Boston Marathon organizers and city officials have held a moment of silence in tribute to those who were killed or wounded in the 2013 finish line bombings.
The bells of Old South Church were rung at 2:49 p.m. Monday — six years to the minute after the first of two bombs exploded on Boylston Street. Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured in the attacks on April 15, 2013.
This is the first time since the attacks that the marathon has been run on April 15. The date since has been designated One Boston Day: a day dedicated to acts of service and kindness across the city.
