At Bushnell Park, 2,000 middle school children from 22 Connecticut schools participate in the ING Run For Something Better on Friday morning. The children completed their final mile of marathon distance (26.2 miles) that they accumulated piecemeal in an eight-week physical education program sponsored by ING. About 17,000 runners are expected to run Saturday morning in the ING Marathon, Half-Marathon and 5K road races.
