A central Indiana marathon that drew about 930 runners began with a moment of silence and a prayer for the victims of Monday's deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Carmel Marathon race director Todd Oliver also says several runners who took part in Saturday's marathon through the city just north of Indianapolis wore official "Boston Marathon 2013" gear indicating they had run in Monday's tragedy-marred marathon.

Oliver himself ran in Monday's race and had crossed the finish line about 15 minutes before two bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring more than 180 others.

He's one of more than 60 Indianapolis-area runners who were registered for the Boston Marathon.

Oliver says it's "great news" for the U.S. that Boston police captured the second of two brothers suspected in the bombings.
