Boston bombing prompts Crazylegs changes
Concerns about security after the bombing of the Boston Marathon are prompting organizers of the Crazylegs Classic in Madison to change the Camp Randall carry-in policy for Saturday’s race.
Organizers said the carry-in policy will mirror Badger game day carry-in policies. Items permitted include bags no larger than 8.5 x 11 inches, binoculars, cameras, blankets, jackets, umbrellas, items related to a medical condition, chairbacks that are no more than 16 inches wide and diaper bags if a child is present. Items not permitted include food, beverages, containers, laser pointers, banners, flags, signs, noisemakers, weapons, inflatables, laptops, video recorders or any items deemed dangerous or inappropriate.
Anyone entering the stadium is subject to search. Storage facilities are not available for checking prohibited items.
Organizers have also said additional security measures will be taken during Saturday’s race, but no specifics have been shared.
