HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) -

 

A group is organizing a run in Huntington to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Huntington Road Runners secretary Ricky Campbell says the 2.6-mile run will be held at 8 p.m. Tuesday starting at the Marshall University Memorial Fountain. Candles will be lit before the start of the run.

Campbell's group has about 150 members. He says he doesn't know how many people would show up to the run, but that interest has been solid.

Campbell ran the Boston Marathon in 2012 and was supposed to this year but couldn't due to financial reasons.

A year ago, Campbell said his family watched him along the finish line within a block of the bombings that took place Monday. He says he's now thankful he stayed home this year.
