COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- Fitness events coming up in north Idaho are re-evaluating their security needs after the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

The Coeur d'Alene Marathon and Iron Man are coming up in May and June.

Organizer of the Coeur d'Alene Marathon, Isaac Mann, said after what happened in Boston it had him thinking about how  security is set up at for Coeur d'Alene's race.

"I was thinking of where do I have all my ambulances stationed," said Mann, "I was looking at all the ambulances out there and the triage and I was thinking, 'Do we have enough for any situation?'" 

More than 2,000 people are signed up for the race in Coeur d'Alene.

Event officials for Iron Man said they are keeping their current safety plan for the triathlon. They say they will plan all events in coordination with public safety agencies.
