Officials look to beef up security at Med City Marathon

ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -- Officials look to beef up security measures at the Med City Marathon after the Boston attacks.

Race director, Wally Arnold says at marathons and other public events, it's a challenge to increase security measures with the use of metal detectors. 

All they can do, he said, is provide security staff and keep a close watch on any suspicious activity.

Arnold added it's unfortunate terrorists take advantage of events that are supposed to be uplifting, exciting and fun for the public.
