BOISE, Idaho (KTVB)— The bombings at the Boston Marathon has Idaho officials thinking of stepping up security at their race. While Boise is a small city compared to others across the country, the explosions in Boston have organizers of the Race to Robie asking if more needs to be done to plan for the unexpected at their small, but popular race.

The half marathon, nicknamed by organizers as “The Toughest Race in the Northwest,” will be ran on Saturday.  As race day nears, the committee of organizers already had several planning meetings scheduled to cover all of the details.  Now the question of security, and if anything more needs to be done will also be discussed at those meetings.

Race committee member Brian Rencher said their finish line is partially secure and not everyone is allowed near it. Race organizers will disuse security with local police. via www.ktvb.com
