The IMT Des Moines Marathon is holding an event Saturday to show support for those affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon Monday.

A run/walk is being held at Nollen Plaza in Des Moines Saturday morning starting at 7:30. Participants will begin the event with a moment of silence and then choose whether to take the one mile or six mile route.

IMT Marathon race director Chris Burch says, “This is not a race, or a training run, but rather a chance to show our community support for Boston the best way we know how to at this time.”

No registration is required.
