First no bags, then no bike rides, and now no military march for some previously participating military groups. Runners World reports that, due to tighter security guidelines at this year’s Boston Marathon, military ruck marchers will not be allowed to make the 26.2-mile journey from Hopkinton to Boylston Street. However, the Boston Athletic Association has clarified that only those who are not officially registered will be prohibited from marching. BAA representative Nick Puleo says that, “130 members of the National Guard will be marching, along with other members of the military who qualified as runners. But anyone who didn’t qualify and does not have a number, will not be authorized to be on the course.” More
