Security Extra Heavy for Fredericksburg's Historic Half Marathon

by Deirdre Blake posted May 14 2013 6:34PM
Following the bombing tragedy at the Boston Marathon, expect extra security at Fredericksburg's Marine Corps Historic Half this weekend. Fredericksburg Police Spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe says State Police will have officers in cars, on motorcycles and in their command vehicle. They will also bring in bomb dogs and their handlers to do random sweeps of free shuttle buses and other areas along the race route.
Unlike in past years, security and barricades will prevent people that are not running from getting near the start of finish line. Police still want residents and visitors to help them. Call them with any tips on suspicious activity.
