BOSTON — The Boston Marathon said Tuesday the race will go on in 2014.
The executive director of the Boston Athletic Association called the race a “deeply held tradition — an integral part of the fabric and history of our community.”
Thomas Grilk said in a statement that organizers are “committed to continuing that tradition” with the 118th Boston Marathon in 2014.
Grilk added that his group is cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of the bombings near the finish line of Monday’s race. Three people were killed and more than 170 injured.
