They called it the “Family 5k.” The footrace organized by the Kiwanis Club of Marco Island on Saturday morning was designed to be family-friendly. Starting and ending at the county’s Tigertail Beach Park, and running through the uncluttered, tree-shaded streets of Hideaway Beach, the event attracted a significant number of moms pushing high-tech roadworthy running strollers, as well as young kids completing the course on their scooters.
