A pair of local runners took part in a pair of stretches for a special cross-country campaign last week.
Bill Dunn and Frank Cherne took part in the One Run for Boston relay. Participants in the One Run pass a torch from runner to runner, going from the West Coast to the East Coast.
Cherne and Dunn both took the torch and made a run at Palo Flechado Pass outside of Taos going toward Angel Fire.
Dunn, a member of the local multi-sport group, the Triatomics, said he saw that the torch was going nearby and he and Cherne jumped at the chance to take part.
The One Run for Boston started as a fundraiser and awareness campaign to help those affected by the bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April.
On April 15, a pair of homemade bombs went off as runners and spectators were watching the end of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 250.
The One Run for Boston started June 7 in Los Angeles and is scheduled to arrive in Boston June 30. The organization’s website said more than 1,000 individual runners will be taking part, running in stages of approximately 10 miles apiece.
The event is similar to some held across the pond in the United Kingdom. In fact, a run in London shortly after the Boston Marathon attack went to aid the victims of that tragedy.
