At the Northshore Park event site, the IRONKIDS village had a fun variety of activities starting at 8:30 a.m. including snow cones, arts and crafts, an obstacle course for kids, pediatric transport ambulance tours, mascots, face painting, local pediatricians meet-and-greets, and check out some pet vendors too.
The IRONKIDS race included the Diaper Dash – 26.2 ft. (independent crawlers,under 2 years), Toddler Dot Trot – 80 ft. (independent walkers, ages 1-3 years), Half mile (ages 3-8 years), and Mile (ages 5-17 years).
The Doggie Dash, a new race featured at this year’s event, followed the children’s races where leashed dogs and their handler had the option to compete in two courses.
