Are Boston Marathon trading cards next?

Elite athletes in Monday’s Boston Marathon will wear uniforms to help spectators and media identify the runners.

"This year the top men in the 2006 Boston Marathon field will wear assigned uniforms to help the media and spectators readily identify the leaders during the race," said spokesman Josh Milne of John Hancock Financial Services, sponsor of the race.

The Flora London Marathon, the next stop in the 5-race Marathon Majors series, will also use the uniform program.
