ABILENE, Texas -

Big Country residents turned out in a big way Wednesday night to remember victims of the Boston terrorist attack.

The Abilene Runner's Club hosted "Runners United to Remember."  The run took place at 7 p.m. 

The event was at Redbud Park. It was a 2.62-mile run.

The President of the Abilene Runner's Club, Robert Taillon, said the turnout was overwhelming and that it surpassed his wildest expectations.

There was a prayer before the run, and organizers estimate more than 100 people came out to the run/walk.
