Ice Breaker Confident in Security

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

The Great Falls annual Ice Breaker road race is coming up soon. Joe Biega talked to the Parks and Rec department to learn about some of the safety measures in place.

"We are just very fortunate to have a good community," explains Patti Reardon.

We are just a little over a week away from a great falls tradition the Icebreaker road race. Hundreds gather to kick off spring.

"It is it's our 35th annual so it's a big year for us. it comes up in two Sunday April 27th and the first race starts at 1 o'clock," says Reardon.

With last years tragic events of the Boston Marathon still fresh in our minds, Patti Reardon of the Parks and Rec Department says safety is our number one concern.

"But we don't foresee any problems our security is very good we have traffic out at every intersection we have Police Officers at the busiest corners. we have first aid on site," says Reardon.

Last years race was the first Ice Breaker after the marathon and according to Reardon it went off without a hitch, giving Parks and Rec a lot of confidence in this coming Icebreaker.

"You know last year it didn't effect us at all, well of course we have lots of security and safety measures already in place. we did take a moment of silence to honor the people that died at the Boston Marathon," says Reardon.

The Great Falls Parks and Rec Department wishes to make known that they will have a number of security on hand to ensure all goes well again this year. Also for folks who are interested in joining the Great Falls Softball League, you can still do so by the deadline tomorrow. All you have to do is stop by the Parks and Rec office before 5 PM.
