The festive Broad Street Run will take place in Philadelphia on Sunday and the city is doing everything it can to ensure both participants and spectators will have an enjoyable and safe day. Some of the extra precautions being taken include removal of mail boxes, increased police presence, and extra video cameras along the 10-mile course.
Comcast SportsNet's Amy Fadool covered the specifics on SportsNite last night in the above clip. Mayor Nutter reiterated there is no specific threat and that the city is just doing everything it can do ensure everyone's safety. He also asked for those running or attending to leave all bags at home if possible.
