Hopefully there are no fatalities.

Too early to jump to conclusions but it's obviously pretty suspicious given the event and the number of people gathered there.

EDIT: Pretty sickening if it's a deliberate attack.

Sounding like 2 explosions each in garbage cans. 20 seconds apart. Info may change so take it with a grain of salt.

Fortunately it didn't happen when the pack of the race was crossing the finish line.

Could have been much much worse.

terrible news, for everyone. I hope its not a terrorist attack or anything.

I feel sorry for everyone involved in this. There are people who train at least 1 year for this event. I will pray for everyone.

Too soon to jump to a conclusion re- terrorism, this could be "just" an unfortunate gas leak that ignited. Hopefully those people that were hurt can have their limbs re-attached. Modern medical care can be spectacular.
