OGDEN — Steady streams of runners swished through steady streams of rain Saturday to triumph in a sometimes-emotional Zions Bank Ogden Marathon.
Many of the thousands of runners who competed in the race were wearing the flagship yellow and blue of the Boston Marathon, making their run at Ogden a redemptive and commemorative race.
“(The) Boston (tragedy) made me want to run more,” said Emily Jeppesen, a half-marathon runner from Fruit Heights. “You don’t want to let them (terrorists) take that away from you. It’s important to run. It gives them the power if you don’t run.”
