Families of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting were in Boston for the marathon.

The last mile of the race was dedicated to the 20 children and six adults killed in the Dec. 14 shooting rampage.

Nine racers from Newtown were among the runners.

Family members were also in an area near the explosions, and some were in the stands but there are no reports they sustained any injuries.
