Runners from NJ race canceled after explosion join NYC run

About 100 runners joined in a New York City race on Sunday after last week's pipe bomb explosion in Seaside Park forced the cancellation of their own scheduled race.



The runners wore matching white shirts and held hands at the starting line of the Tunnel to Towers Run on Sunday morning.



They had been planning to take part in the Semper Five charity 5K in Seaside Park on Sept. 17. That race was halted after the bomb went off. No one was injured.



The New York City race traces the route of a firefighter who ran from Brooklyn to the World Trade Center on 9/11. Proceeds go to wounded veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. About 30,000 people take part.
