The 28th annual Junior Carlsbad took place this morning kicking off a weekend of family friendly fun and fitness. Kids from diapers to 12-years-old ran through the streets of Carlsbad in a series of races ranging from one mile to one block. Elite runners, Paul Chelimo and Heron Lagat were onsite handing out medals and congratulating the kids on their finishes. Both will return tomorrow for the Carlsbad 5000, the World’s Fastest 5K, where some of the fastest elite runners in the world will take their turn on the 3.1 mile course.
