MILWAUKEE - Rock and Sole run organizers worked on an enhanced security plan this year following the Boston Marathon parties.
The run started at 7 a.m. Saturday. Bags were not allowed bags at the start-line and north of Michigan Street.
Race workers also screened and tagged bags at the finish line.
The run consists of a 5K, 1/4 marathon, and 1/2 marathon.
Runners from at least 40 states came out for the event.
