Young Athletes Foundation Hosts Second Kids Race of the Winter Season

DULUTH, Minn. –It’s hard to stay active in the winter time because sometimes it’s just too cold out. Well for the kids, a series of free indoor races look to help keep the kids active.

In partnership with Grandma’s Marathon, the Young Athletes Foundation had races which kids from ages 1 TO 14 ran at the Ward Wells Field House at UMD. Before each race, kids did some much needed stretches so that they didn’t get hurt out on the track.

“So a part of our programing, the Young Athletes Foundation is fortunate enough to put on a series and events like this throughout the year. They are all free. It’s a free opportunity for parents to bring their kids out to get some exercise in a fun environment that’s all about coming out and having fun,” said Race Director Greg Haapala.

This is the second race in the series of three free races. More information can be found on Grandma’s Marathon website

The next and final race is on Feb. 4, at the Marcovich Wellness Center at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Registration can be completed either online anytime before the race or in-person at 9 a.m. the day of the race. The third race of the winter series will start at 10 a.m. an hour after registration.
