7th Annual Apple Kid Duathlon
The Apple Kids popularity continues to grow as the word of this fun challenge spreads across central Minnesota. In its 6th year, the race drew 180 participants! In 2011 we hope to reach 200+ young athletes. Why? Because this race is all about motivating kids to be active and have some fun! And then, of course, there are goodies: chip timing, a cool T-shirt, post-race food and drink, awesome awards, door prizes, and more! This year’s event will use the same course as the previous years, and it will utilize the same top-notch organizing committee, venue, sponsors, and loyal volunteers to provide a well-organized, fun, and safe race!
