Runners who had not finished the race were diverted straight down Commonwealth Avenue and into a family meeting area, according to an emergency plan that had been in place.

Here’s what the Guardian reported on the day:
So there’s another little ‘mystery’ solved. At some stage, they just diverted the last runners away from the restricted Finish Line area where (perhaps) some loud yet harmless firecracker-smoke-bombs were set off. So, you may ask, what if these diverted runners heard those explosions – which obviously took place AFTER they had been diverted? Wouldn’t they suspect foul play? Well, that’s where these various sidestories come in handy:

The remaining public at the Finish line (probably not that many people, given that the frontrunners’ Marathon was long over)was also evacuated under some pretext.
All else was just prefabricated / staged / computerized imagery.
Easy does it.
