Running group Los Angeles Speed Project held an impromptu "Run for
Boston" event with several hundred supporters 6 am Wednesday morning
that started at the Santa Monica Pier.
Organizers said the route extended seven miles out before looping back through the city for a total of about 14 miles.
The run was organized to honor the three people killed and the more
than 170 others injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of
the Boston Marathon on Monday.
