Boston Marathon photo shoot attracts hundreds to finish line days before race


BOSTON — A photo shoot for a sports magazine cover marking the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings has attracted thousands of people, including survivors of the twin explosions, emergency workers, well-wishers and city officials.

Saturday’s Sports Illustrated cover shoot occurred at the marathon finish line, where hundreds of people had gathered to watch runners finish the race when the April 15 explosions occurred. Three people were killed and 260 others injured.

Organizers say about 3,000 people returned to the location early Saturday for the “Boston Strong” photo shoot. Participants included bombing survivors and their families, Boston Mayor Martin Walsh, Police Commissioner William Evans, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and others.

Sports Illustrated Managing Editor Chris Stone says “Boston Strong is a story about people, ordinary people doing extraordinary things, ordinary people doing ordinary things.”
