Boston Marathon Training Class Offered In Missoula

MISSOULA -

Almost 20 Missoula runners are registered for the 2014 Boston Marathon. To get them prepared, a 16 week spring marathon training class kicked off Thursday night with an informational meeting.

Last year terror struck the century old marathon, when two bombs exploded at the finish line killing three people and injuring more than 100. Program coaches say the tragedy only made more Missoula runners come out for this year's marathon.

"It's even a greater turnout, because Boston allowed a larger number of people to sign up this year then in last years, so it's a huge turn out, a huge turn out from Missoula. Everybody is excited to prove that you can't let down runner spirits," said the classes coach, Tim Mosbacher.

You can still register for the class. Program coaches said runners of all speeds and ages can sign up the program. They said you don't have to be registered in Boston Marathon, but you must be able to run 16 miles the first day of class.
