Runners hit the road for 31st annual KC marathon

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- As the sun rose over the city this morning, thousands of runners pounded the pavement in downtown Kansas City at the 31st annual KC Marathon.

A local judge completed his 200th Marathon. Steve Fuller ran his first 26.2 miles in Kansas City, and has since completed marathons around the globe.

Also, about 600 runners were raising money for a cause halfway across the globe. FOX 4's Carey Wickersham spoke with members of Team World Vision about their commitment.

The group is setting out to raise money to bring new wells and water purification systems to communities in Africa.
