The Flower City Challenge – a 5K and half marathon in Rochester – is just two Sundays away.
Tuesday morning, News10NBC spoke with the organizers of the race to see if what happened in Boston will impact the Rochester event.
David Boutillier is the race director and co-owner of Fleet Feet. He said, “We've already spoken with the Rochester Police Department to find out if we are going to be needing to do anything different than the safety protocols we already have in place. We'll have meetings this weekend, early next as follow-ups, but so far they've assured us that all of their regular planning is right on course."
They are expecting more than 3,000 runners for the 5K and the half marathon. They don’t believe the registration will be impacted.
The races are Sunday, April 28 in downtown Rochester.
