PHOENIX (KSAZ) - One year ago immediately after the explosions in Boston there was a call for action to all running stores nationwide.

The Runners Den in Phoenix is no exception, the store raising thousands for victims out east.

At 7 a.m. Monday morning the air horn sounded; the first runner started off the first mile of what would be a 26 mile virtual treadmill relay race.

"One year after the fact we wanted to make sure the awareness is still there," said Nathan Wallace.

The 26,000 runners participating in the actual race were on the screen as valley athletes watched, running each step in conjunction.

"I was maybe a block away when everything happened," said David Bluestein.

Bluestein crossed the finish line ten minutes before the first explosion last year. His emotions were like so many others, very raw.

"This is a celebration, this is us fighting back saying we're not going to let anything like what happened hold us back," he said.

Monday's virtual marathon not only supported those running in the Boston Marathon this year; they also raised money for last years victims.

"They actually trolled in on one of the survivors; they walked the last five yards, you had goose bumps," said Amanda Hughes.

Hughes ran third during Monday's virtual race; she raised money for the "One Fund Boston" charity. Proceeds from the virtual race will go to the same foundation as will support from valley runners who gathered Monday.
