Published May 15, 2013
PROCEED WITH CAUTION: In N.Y., Lynn Zinser notes the Brooklyn Half Marathon will "host about 25,000 competitors this weekend." NYRR officials have been working with the N.Y. Police Dept. to "ramp up security, including a new, stringent bag check procedure, additional police officers along the course, secure runners-only areas and family reunion zones." Bomb-sniffing dogs will "be out in force." The event will "draw its biggest field by a large margin." The race two years ago "drew 7,000 runners" (N.Y. TIMES, 5/15).
