COSTA MESA — Watch out marathon runners, the next generation of competitors is rounding the bend.
As preview for what was in store the next day, about 2,000 kids 6 and younger participated in the Kids Run the OC event at the Orange County Fairgrounds on Saturday, the conclusion to a fitness program that saw children from all over the county play games and activities that equated to a 25-mile marathon.
The kids ran a full mile in the fairgrounds, finishing off a program that started at individual elementary schools county wide. The program is meant to promote health and fitness in a fun way and combat obesity.
