2019 Boston Marathon first to be held on April 15, anniversary of bombing since 2013 attack

For the first time, the Boston Marathon will be held on April 15, the same date as the 2013 bombing at the event’s finish line, that killed three people and injured hundreds.

Representatives from the Boston Police Department, FBI,  Massachusetts State Police, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency, and the Boston Athletic Association discussed the security of the Marathon recently, wrote Jacqueline Tempera for Masslive.com.

Joseph Bonavolonta, the FBI’s special agent running the FBI Boston Field Office, told reporters that no credible threats had been made against this year’s Marathon, but that there is around the clock work being done to keep runners and spectators safe.
