Police are increasing security for Saturday's Grandma's Marathon in Duluth, Minn. in reaction to the Boston Marathon bombing in April.
You can expect to see more uniformed police officers on the marathon route and at the finish line. Duluth police will be joined by the Minnesota State Patrol, county deputies, federal agents and the Coast Guard.
"(The Boston bombing) changed our operation," Lt. Eric Rish told the Duluth News Tribune. "We're taking any measure that's plausible."
CAMERAS ON THE COURSE
Police will use cameras with live monitoring along the marathon course and Grandma's Marathon officials also installed surveillance cameras on top of its Canal Park office to enhance existing cameras.
RUNNERS MUST SHOW ID
Runners will be required to show photo identification when they pick up their racing packets on Friday.
NO BAGS AT START/FINISH
Runners and spectators will not be allowed to bring bags to the starting area, and bags are banned from the finish line bleachers.
CLEAR BAGS FOR RUNNERS
Runners will receive clear plastic bags for their post-race belongings when they board the shuttle to the starting area.
