St. Louis-based Fleet Feet Running Stores sent a team of 11 runners to the Boston Marathon.

Director of training, Brandi Barbre tells KTRS News that they were worried about some of their runners right after the blasts. "A couple of people were a few hours late, because they were actually crossing the finish line right when, kind of, the explosions went off.  As far as health-wise, they're safe and back in their hotel.  And they way I understand it, ready to come home."

 

The Fleet Feet runners, like many in the area around the blast zone, were locked down inside their hotel for the night.  The company says the runners are making arrangements to come home later Tuesday.

Veteran St. Louis runner and coach, Flavia Beretta Bader says, "at one moment I was celebrating a great day of running and in a second it turned tragic, the worst thing I've ever seen." 

Two large race organizers in St. Louis, Go! St. Louis and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, both responded to Monday’s explosions in Boston.

Two weekends ago thousands lined the streets of downtown St. Louis to run the Go! St. Louis Marathon.

Go! workers issued a statement expressing sadness by Monday's events. They said they also understand the tremendous effort it takes to hold a marathon especially when it comes to ensuring the safety of runners and spectators.
