LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The marathon festivities began this morning with the 5k and 10k runs as well as the "Little Rockers" kids marathon.

Our own Dawn Scott and Craig O'Neill helped emcee the fun for over 2,000 kids who got to race over the final parts of tomorrow's course.

And toward the end, a special wish granted for one young girl named Elsa Cooper. She got to meet Elsa from Disney's Frozen. She also found out that the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Delta Dental would be sending her to Disney World.

As for the grown-ups: Matt Bartels of Michigan and Katie Williams of Pennsylvania won the men’s and women’s divisions of the 5k.

Philip King of Jacksonville and Amanda Cooke of Ohio won the 10k events.
