People run course that spells out 'Boston' on 5th anniversary of bombings


(CNN) People in Boston came together Sunday to run a course that spelled out the city's name, five years after deadly bomb blasts went off during the Boston Marathon. The city's triathlon team, Zoom Multisport, began what they call the #BostonRun two weeks after the 2013 bombings, said Greg Soutiea, one of the organizers. "A lot of people on our team needed closure," Soutiea said. "It was a way for our team to come together ... and support each other." Between 10 and 15 people ran that first year, he said; this year, about 150 people participated.
