Runners who weren’t able to finish the Boston Marathon got a second chance.

About 3,000 runners and bombing victims in Boston finished the distance Saturday.

The one-mile run began at Kenmore Square and ended at the official finish line.

They hugged and helped one another get through the emotional run.

On April 15, two bombs went off near the finish line.

Three people were killed and more than 250 were hurt.

One of the men running was badly hurt when the bombs went off.

Doctors removed 37 pieces of shrapnel from his body.

He was also very badly burned and lost much of his hearing.
