Officials are beefing up security for this week's marathon in North Dakota's largest city, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260.
Fargo Marathon officials aren't releasing specifics about security for the event that begins with a youth run Thursday and concludes with the marathon on Saturday.
But Executive Director Mark Knutson tells The Forum newspaper that marathon officials have met with local and federal law agencies, area ambulance crews and officials at the Fargodome, where the race ends.
Knutson says only two runners withdrew from the Fargo Marathon after the bombings at the finish line in Boston.
