Multiple Events Held Sunday Before Boston Marathon

BOSTON (CBS) -- In just over 24 hours, all eyes are going to be on the start line for the Boston Marathon. But before that, there are several events taking place on Sunday.

Sunday is the third and final day of the Marathon Expo. Runners can stop by the Hynes Convention Center to pick up their bibs and race packets between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Runners were also invited to Boston's Old South Church for the "Blessing of Runners." Services were held at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m.

At 1 p.m., the 1972 Women's Inaugural Field panel spoke, and later on, the world's best para-athletes will shared their stories on the Boston Marathon live stage.
