Saturday Morning at the Races: UMD
The Young Athletes Foundation is again partnering with Duluth-area colleges to present three Saturday Morning at the Races events, providing opportunities for children to practice healthy living during the colder months by participating in running races.
Jan. 7 – Burns Wellness Commons at the College of St. Scholastica
Jan. 21 – Ward Wells Fieldhouse at the University of Minnesota Duluth
Feb. 4 – Marcovich Wellness Center at the University of Wisconsin-Superior
The series is free and open to all children ages 14 and under, with adaptive and wheelchair athlete opportunities available at all locations.
Participants, based on age, will have the opportunity to complete either a 1/8-mile, 1/4-mile or 1/2-mile course, and every child will also receive a T-shirt co-branded with that weekend’s college partner.
Races will start at 10 a.m. each week, and participants will be separated into different heats based on the number of kids in any specific age group.
Anyone interested in participating can register in advance at raceroster.com. On-site registration will also be available each week starting at 9 a.m.
