Relay heading toward area

A 3300-mile non-stop running relay from Los Angeles to Boston will pass through Steubenville on June 26. The event is being organized by a trio from the United Kingdom who wanted to show their support for Boston following the tragic events of April 15.

One Run For Boston started in Venice Beach, Calif. on June 7 and is scheduled to reach Boston at 8 p.m. on June 30.

Hundreds of runners from across the United States will keep the relay going around the clock through 14 states and four time zones, passing a specially designed baton between them. Supporters will be able to follow their progress online thanks to a GPS tracking device fitted to the baton which will update its location every 15 minutes.

Trishelle Himmelrick from Weirton and Alana Coleman from Moon Township signed up to run stage No. 249 from Steubenville to Eldersville Pa., a distance of 11 miles.

“When the news from Boston reached us on April 15, we were completely stunned” said Danny Bent, one of the organizers. “It took a little while to digest what had happened, but we each reacted in exactly the same way – we just knew we had to do something.”

By collecting donations from each of the participating runners, the relay is raising money for The One Fund Boston, set up by the Mayor of Boston to assist the victims and families most seriously affected by the bombings. The One Run For Boston team have recently confirmed that donations made by runners who sign up to run in Oklahoma will be donated to the Disaster Relief Fund set up in the wake of last month’s devastating tornado.
