Kids Pack Downtown Lynchburg to Run Amazing Mile Race

      Lynchburg, VA - Hundreds of little ones that took part in Friday night's 13th annual Amazing one mile, quarter, and half mile races; all three races are a part of the Genworth Virginia Ten Miler weekend.

      Organizers say this year 625 kids, ages 13 and under, participated in one of the three races that were held.

      Many parents chose to run the quarter mile race with their children.

      "We hope they find that running is fun and that exercising is fun. And we have parents involved with them so that it's a family affair" said Ashleigh Karol the Director of Marketing for Amazement Square, and the Amazing Mile Organizer.

      All runners received a t-shirt, medal, and a healthy goody bag at the completion of their race.
