BOSTON, Mass. -- The Boston Athletic Association said it will add 9,000 spots to next year's Boston Marathon in response to this year's deadly bombings at the race.

The entries are being added to accommodate the 5,000 runners who couldn't finish the race in April because of the terror attack.

The double bombings near the finish line killed three people and injured at least 264.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is charged with killing four people.

He is awaiting trial after pleading not guilty to 30 federal charges.
