Ottawa runners in the Boston Marathon are getting ready to return one year after the bombing attack that claimed three lives and injured hundreds of people.
63-year-old Terry Bolster was near the end of the race when it happened, and never got to finish.
Bolster tells CTV Ottawa it's time for the runners to take the race back.
"I think the emotional power of the people that are going this year is going to defeat what happened last year."
3,600 runners are subject to more security restrictions this year, including not being able to carry bags of any kind.
The marathon is next Monday.
