Support for Boston Victims

I’ve been thinking all week about the tragedy in Boston and how lucky I am to be able to continue to run and enjoy these amazing surroundings. Runners of the Zion 100 will have the opportunity to show their support for the victims and families of the 3 dead and 17 critically injured in Boston on Monday by carrying a blue or gold baton (Boston Marathon colors) dedicated to a bombing victim. The batons will be sent to the surviving victims or the family of those lost, letting them know that it was carried 100 miles with them in our hearts and minds. The batons are lightweight and can easily be put in a hydration pack or carried. Pass it along to another runner on the trail as you get to know them. Hopefully everyone interested will get a chance to show their support and will have some time to reflect on the situation as they carry the baton towards the finish line.
