Runners to run in memory of MIT’s Sean Collier

MIT police Officer Sean ­Collier had told friends he was going to tackle a big goal Wednesday: He was going to sign up for Boston’s Run to ­Remember, a Memorial Day half-marathon through the heart of the city held as a yearly tribute to law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

“We’ve gotten several e-mails from people who are his friends and associates who say he was very much looking forward to this run,” race organizer Steve Balfour said. “His comment was something like, ‘Oh yeah, I’m going to register next Wednesday.’ ”
