Upcoming London Marathon Will Go On: remembering Boston's own across the Pond

Hello! Reports:

"Prince William's friend and his fiancée have described how they were caught up in the tragic Boston bombings, as Prince Harry vowed to honour his long-standing commitment at the London Marathon on Sunday in defiance of the blast...

Focus has now fallen on Sunday's London Marathon, which organisers have confirmed will go ahead in defiance of the bombers who struck in the US.

Leading the country in its show of solidarity is Prince Harry. The third-in-line, who is patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, will still attend the race and hand out medals to the winners. He is also expected to spend time at the finish line.

London Marathon organisers have announced that Sunday's runners will observe a 30-second silence before each of the three starts."

Also, the participants will also be given a black ribbon to wear when they also pick up their race number in remembrance of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Let's hear it for our friends across the Pond! Don't let terror work--defy it and stand strong!
