Army Reserve memorial run cancelled

MARYSVILLE — The 364th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, a U.S. Army Reserve unit headquartered locally, has cancelled the memorial run it had scheduled for May 4.

The five-kilometer run was planned as a memorial to those killed, injured and affected by the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings.

"Unfortunately, the amount of time needed to correctly prepare for the event didn't meet our intended date," said Capt. Christopher Larsen, the unit's public affairs officer. "Our thoughts and condolences go out to the victims and families of this tragedy, and to the people of Boston."
