Thirty-five fourth grade students from Renbrook School in West Hartford participated in the FitKids Run sponsored by the Hartford Marathon Foundation (HMF) at Rentschler Field in East Hartford on Tuesday.

HMF FitKids runs offer distances between 50 yards for the smallest children up to 1-mile races for older kids. For more than 10 years, Renbrook students have training for runs all over Connecticut with their running club called Road Runners.

The HMF FitKids In School, operated by the Hartford Marathon Foundation, is designed to encourage a healthy, active lifestyle in middle school students grades 4th thru 8th. Following their final mile, students explore the World Of Fitness, a fitness themed expo presented by the YMCA of Greater Hartford.
