Communities along Marathon route getting more invitational bibs

Each community along the Boston Marathon route will get an increased number of invitational numbers for the 2014 race to give out to runners, and according to local officials, the entries are more in demand than ever.

“There is a buzz about this race. It’s on everyone’s mind,” said Melvin Kleckner, town administrator in Brookline, which was given 35 invitational numbers by the Boston Athletic Association, 10 more than for last spring’s event.
