Two Penticton runners were listed to be at the 2013 Boston Marathon. Multiple explosions have been reported at the marathon's finish line in downtown Boston.

Ellis Andrews, 68, and Thomas Evans, 44, of Penticton were listed as participants on the marathon's website, www.baa.org. Evans is a dentist and staff at his office told Infotel News he did not attend this year's race. The website stated Andrews finished his race. There is no start time listed for Evans.
