A group of Louisville runners including former Cardinal and 2012 Boston Marathon winner Wesley Korir are unharmed and safe after explosions during Monday's race that killed two and injured more than 120.
Korir was among a group including former Cardinal Michael Eaton and Louisville cross country/track and field coach Ron Mann, who was coaching both runners. Korir was leading at the 22-mile mark before finishing fifth with a time of 2:12:30.
Eaton ran 2:36:32 in his first Boston Marathon, finishing 175th overall and 135th in his division.
Mann said in a statement that "we are fine" and are safe in their respective hotels, but a couple of hours earlier were close to the VIP stands close to where the two explosions occurred near the finish line.
