Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The bombings in Boston have Fargo marathon officials

beefing up security.

Race director Mark Knutson says a crisis management team prepares and plans for the Fargo Marathon each year.

The biggest problem is usually weather, but this year, Knutson says more precautions will be taken along the race route.

Mark Knutson- Fargo Marathon Race Director: "We may lean on the general public too a little bit to say hey this is your community and you live on this street, have you seen anything that's unusual, have you seen an unusual car that keeps passing by your neighborhood, you know around marathon time."

Because of the impending flood, the race route will be changing - depending on the melt.
