Steve Martin and Tanya Carter and their families are safe at their hotel near Boston.

The two Prince George runners completed their race before two explosions at the finish line killed two people and injured dozens at the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Carter had crossed the finish line about seven minutes before the first explosion happened. She said when she turned around all she saw was "a ball of smoke" after what sounded like a cannon.

Amid the "mass hysteria" Carter worked her way to the family gathering area where husband Kevin, as well as Martin and his wife, were waiting for her.
