A triathlon set up just for the tiniest triathletes! Participants will bike, run and get wet as they make their way to the finish line where they will receive a sticker medal presented to them by a firefighter or police officer! Little athletes will bike on their own self-pushed riding item on a path; run down a length of path; splash into the splash pad; and end with a dash to the finish line. Plus, before or after the race, they'll have a chance to create a medal craft and grab a snack and water.
A family member or friend over the age of 12 must assist (run/walk next to) their registered participant(s) as they make their way through the course. Participants need to bring their own bike/riding toy, and wear a helmet, comfortable clothes that can get wet and athletic shoes.
Recommended ages 2-5 $6 (child only needs to register) Saturday, Aug. 5 M Health Fairview Sports Center, outdoor area and splash pad
Woodbury and Cottage Grove Parks and Recreation Department team up to bring you an experience like no other! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find and safely return the plutonium rocks hidden around the park area. Participant beware: the park area is home to many mad scientists who will try to prevent you and your friends from finding the plutonium! Prepare for a thrilling chase with challenges along the way. If you desire, come dressed in your best zombie attire, but please make sure physical movement like running and climbing is possible.
