Boston Marathon officials have agreed to notify all participants in the April 21 race of the potential for drug testing, although a decision has not been made on whether to go ahead with the controversial program this year. It is "likely" that drug checks will be mandatory for top finishers in 1987, race administrator Guy Morse said.
