BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Dozens of runners who had their races cut short because of the Boston Marathon bombings will run in the Vermont City Marathon.

Organizers of the Burlington race invited runners who were unable to finish in Boston to enter the VCM on Memorial Day weekend free of charge.

Race officials tell us that so far 58 runners have signed up.

As part of the opening ceremonies for the race, there will be a moment of silence at the start of the race to honor those affected by the bombings.
