Marathon runners finish at Indianapolis 500

INDIANAPOLIS — Bundled up against the cold and with tears in their eyes, dozens of runners unable to complete the Boston Marathon due to the bombings last month finally finished their runs over the famed yard of bricks at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday.

The runners were honored at the Indianapolis 500 by having the opportunity to run down the front stretch moments before to the ‘‘Greatest Spectacle in Racing.’’ Thousands of people, including some crew members of the race teams, cheered them on as they ran down pit road.
