Official Response to the Tragic Events

To Our Running Community,

We first want to thank all those who expressed concern about the runners and supporters of the Greater Boston Track Club.

We are lucky in one sense that, as we know of today, no member or family member was impacted by the tragic events at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15th. However, we are greatly saddened by the deaths and injuries to our running community brethren who were so viciously attacked in the city that we love. Our team extends our condolences and sympathy to all those directly affected, and our hands and help are always there in case of need.

While we are confused by the events that occurred yesterday, we are clear on one thing: we will continue to cherish the sport we love in the city we love. We will be back running and contributing to the Boston Marathon next year in even stronger force. Our full support goes to the Boston Athletic Association as not only a fellow running club, but as a tremendous contributor to our sport in the region and globally. We fully expect them to come back even stronger in running events not only this year and in the Boston Marathon next year, but for many years to come.

Thank you.

The Greater Boston Track Club
