KALAMAZOO, Mich.- Kalamazoo Area Runners are gathering Tuesday night to run in honor of those who were unable to finish the Boston Marathon.

Monday night Brett Beier posted on Facebook:
Tomorrow night (Tuesday) 6PM, let’s all meet up at the Celery Flats for a run. All paces should show up, and you can run as far as you’d like, but let’s ALL run the first 1/2 mile together as a group. So many runners weren’t able to run that final 1/2 mile today in Boston, let’s show our solidarity as a running family and run together. I’d love to see a bunch of people out there, as we are a “family”.

The memorial run is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday at Celery Flats, 7335 Garden Lane in Portage.

Fox 17 will bring you live coverage of the event.
