Nashville Marathon Sees Big Crowds, Heightened Security

Yesterday's St. Jude Country Music Marathon in Nashville marked the "largest combined marathon and half-marathon" in the U.S. since the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings, with "more than 30,000 runners and a crowd estimated at more than 50,000." The U.S. Department of Homeland Security was "on hand along with Nashville police, more than 150 private security officers and extra bomb-sniffing dogs" (AP, 4/27).
