Boston Marathon head: Race will go on in 2014

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Marathon says the race will go on in 2014.

The executive director of the Boston Athletic Association calls the race a "deeply held tradition - an integral part of the fabric and history of our community."

Thomas Grilk says in a statement Tuesday that organizers are "committed to continuing that tradition" with the 118th Boston Marathon in 2014.

Grilk adds that his group is cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of the bombings. Three people were killed and more than 170 were injured near the marathon finish line Monday.
