The Mill Race Marathon weekend kicks off tonight with the Kids Fun Run at Mill Race Park.
Organizer Randy Stafford says organizers expect more than 1,000 kids to take part.
You can register for the kids run run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Commons today and from 4:45 to 5:45 tonight at the park.
Stafford says this is a way for kids to learn to enjoy healthy activities.
Public safety officials remind you that there will be road closures downtown today and all around the city tomorrow for the full marathon. They are asking for your patience and for you to be extra observant for runners in the area.
The Saturday public activities start with opening ceremonies at 7 a.m. and the marathon start at 7:30 a.m..
