Children of ages 14 and under came out for the Saturday Morning at the Races series, at the College of St. Scholastica this past weekend. Taking part in the event hosted by the Young Athletes’ Foundation.

A great athletic opportunity to spend time with others during the winter.

“We always want to provide those chances throughout the year, not just in those warmer months that are more typical for running. So this is a really important series for us to give kids an opportunity to be active, whether they’ve been here before or they haven’t,” stated Zach Snieder the Grandmas Marathon Marketing Director.

These races are meant to serve as a cornerstone and pathway of opportunities for Northland children to live healthy and active lifestyles.

“That’s the thing with everybody these days is trying to find that healthier option to do things right. So having an indoor option in the winter is another plus,” added Duluth native Amanda Schafter.

The Saturday Morning at the Races series is free and has registration still open for their next two events on Jan. 21 at the Ward Wells Fieldhouse at the University of Minnesota Duluth and Feb. 4 at the Marcovich Wellness Center at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

“I would love to continue to bring him to these races in the winter. Bring him to the races in the summer, the Grandma’s races in the summer at the high school. Just try keep him active as much as possible,” concluded CSS track and field coach Tony Evans.
