Salt Lake City Marathon Will Go On As Scheduled, Despite Boston Bombings

Police from several Salt Lake Valley departments will assist with marathon security Saturday, as they do every year.

Despite the Boston bombings, local authorities do not expect to make many security changes.  They say security for the 26-mile run has always been heavy.

Some 75 percent of Salt Lake City police officers were already assigned to marathon security, even before the incident in New England.
