With the recent problems on air travel that would be a hazard for air passengers since the volcanic eruption on Iceland that spewed ash, some of the top contenders for the upcoming Boston Marathon 2010 have already withdrawn from the event. Even John Hancock himself, who is one of the main sponsors for the Boston Marathon has already announced his upcoming absense to the event because of rescheduled flights. European contenders were greatly affected by the ashfall.
Meanwhile, the Boston Athletic Association are still making ways to accomodate as much of the top contending runners to still be able to run despite the problems in schedule and travel. BAA has made provisions for runners to still pick up their race kits or race bibs until the Boston Marathon 2010 Race Day this coming Monday.
