All Butte, Tehama, and Shasta County runners in the Boston Marathon were reportedly unhurt following two explosions near the race finish line. Those bombs killed 3 people and injured 140. The Chico ER reports several Butte County residents were within about 200 yards of the blasts. Local sportscaster Royal Courtain told the newspaper he was trying to get to the finish line to take a picture of his wife when the bombs went off. He reported seeing body parts and seriously injured victims as he searched for his wife. A Magalia sheriff's deputy and Paradise track coach also finished the race before the explosions.
