Boston Marathon head says organizers are committed to running 2014 race

BOSTON - The Boston Marathon says the race will go on in 2014.

The executive director of the Boston Athletic Association calls the race a "deeply held tradition — an integral part of the fabric and history of our community."

Thomas Grilk says in a statement Tuesday that organizers are "committed to continuing that tradition" with the 118th Boston Marathon in 2014.

Grilk adds that his group is co-operating with law enforcement in the investigation of the bombings. Three people were killed and more than 170 were injured near the marathon finish line Monday.
