Riggs said changes are being made behind the scenes, and runners and spectators likely won't notice a difference.
Thousands of spectators and volunteers will support the 35,000 people signed up to run the race.
Riggs said he's confident that Indianapolis will host a safe Mini-Marathon, but he said police need the public's help at big events. If folks see something suspicious, he said, call police.

"We do have the resources, but for me to sit here and tell you we can be 100 percent foolproof, we can't do that in the United States of America," Riggs said. "We are a free society. That's why we're going to do our due diligence, and we're calling on citizens that if they see something unusual to give us a call."
Riggs said he and his family will attend the Mini-Marathon.
