Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Local organizers are making sure the Greater Binghamton Bridge Run is one of safety and honor.

The half marathon and 5K race will pound the pavement in a little more than three weeks, taking routes throughout the city.

The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce plans to review its safety and emergency plan with the Binghamton Police and Fire departments and Broome County Emergency Services.

The Chamber wants to make sure the race is safe for participants and spectators.

"Something like this is not going to deter people, and in many aspects it's going to say we're going to show them. We're going to show up in even larger numbers," said President of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce, Lou Santoni.

Santoni said he hopes the tragedy will bring more people to the run in support of Boston, the marathon runners and their families.
