Runners gathered at Foster Avenue Beach in Chicago this evening to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The Chicago Area Runners Association in the morning organized the Boston Marathon Unity Run, spreading the word with media that included Facebook.
"We will go for a short run as a sign of solidarity. All paces welcome," the Facebook "event" said.
Facebook recorded 237 people going to the run, which had been mapped out to be just under 3 miles. Runners followed a path all in a lakefront park, with Cricket Hill being the turnaround point.
