The 12th annual Garmin Marathon was held on April 18 in Olathe, Kansas.

The event featured a "10K, half marathon, full marathon and a Munchkin Marathon," all set in a "Land of Oz" theme, noted The Kansas City Star.

Ashley Arnold, the director of the race and the vice president of the Olathe Convention & Visitors Bureau, told The Kansas City Star, “The Wizard of Oz theme definitely attracts a lot of people. That movie made Kansas famous. People come dressed up as Dorothy, or even the Tin Man, and it’s so fun to see.”

According to the Garmin Marathon website, the Munchkin Marathon allowed kids to run most of the 26.2-mile marathon over 16 weeks, but finish the "final 1.2 miles on race day."

A local TV reporter was doing a stand-up from the race (video below), and when she mentioned that about 200 children would be running, a young man tried jumping over a makeshift fence behind her and fell, noted FTVLive.com
