Brookings area runners are safe

Posted: Tuesday, Apr 16th, 2013

BROOKINGS All Brookings area runners participating in the Boston Marathon are safe.

In all, there were 32 racers from South Dakota, according to the Boston Athletic Association website, with a majority living in or around Sioux Falls.

Bruce Allen of Flandreau says he completed his second Boston Marathon with a time of 3:03:05, about an hour before the blasts went off near the finish line.

He left the area about 40 minutes before the explosions and was back at his hotel two blocks away with his son, 11-year-old David Allen of Flandreau, when the bombs detonated.
