Ga. running company plans run to show solidarity

ATLANTA (AP) - A metro Atlanta running company has planned an event to show solidarity with victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Nathan Haskins, general manager of Big Peach Running Co. in Midtown Atlanta, says the chain of stores has organized a moment of silence and memorial run slated to begin Tuesday at 7 a.m. Haskins says Tuesday's run is expected to begin in Midtown and last for at least one mile.

Haskins says a Big Peach group run leader was 1 of 346 Georgians who registered for the marathon, and 1 of the company's general managers was in the stands before the explosions. Haskins says both left the area before the blasts and have been accounted for.

The explosions Monday afternoon killed at least two people and injured at least 100 others.
