Grandma’s Marathon Cancels Kids Races For July 28
Due to the weather, Grandma's Marathon and the Young Athletes Foundation have canceled their popular Wednesday Night At The Races For Proctor for tonight (July 28).
So, instead of happening tonight, the next race will be August 4 at Duluth East High School, at 6:00 p.m. The races will then continue every Wednesday (hence the name), and participants will be separated into different heats based on the number of kids in any specific age group.
According to a Press Release From the YAF and Grandma's Marathon here are the rest of the races:
August 4 – Duluth East High School
August 11 – Superior High School
August 18 – Hermantown High School
August 25 – Wade Stadium (includes year-end picnic)
The Wednesday Night at the Races 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, a 1/4-mile, or a 1/2-mile course, and every child will also receive a ribbon after finishing and be entered in weekly prize drawings.
If your child is interested in running in this fun event, YAF and Grandma's encourages you to register in advance at grandmasmarathon.com. Kids and their families can register for all remaining events at once, or pick and choose the dates and locations that work best for them. On-site registration will also be available each week starting at 5:00 p.m.
