High Point, NC -- Two thousand runners of all ages met in High Point Saturday to test their stamina in three different races.

First was the Superhero 10K. Runners--many of them in costumes--ran through the bicentennial greenway and the Piedmont Parkway business park.

Flow Mini gave the runners with the best costumes a weekend in a Mini Cooper, and Off N' Running gave winners gift certificates to their store.

Next, runners ages 4 and older took off on the One Mile Fun Run. GO FAR hopes these kids can become their next generation of 5 and 10K runners.

Finally, 1,500 runners from several age groups ran in the GO FAR 5K. National Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle was at the starting line encouraging kids before the race.

Each runner received a GO FAR medal at the finish line.

GO FAR worked with Greensboro Kiwanis Club to organize and raise funds to provide shoes and support for the next generation of runners.
