In keeping with its new venue and new date, Komen Vermont’s Race for the Cure on Saturday, July 18, will include a new twist on the annual Kids Fun Run event: an obstacle course dotted with challenges including hula hoop hopping, traffic cone weaving, balance beam walking, and hurdle jumping. All children finishing the Fun Run will receive a Blue Ribbon and a free, all-day Mountain Adventure Pass to Bromley. “The course will be laid out on the soccer field at Riley Rink at Hunter Park,” said Komen VT-NH executive director, Terry Farkas. “It’s going to be great. Helen (Strom-Olsen), our kids coordinator, has taken great pains to make this year’s Fun Run special. Not too tough for any of the age groups, but challenging, for sure, and a lot of fun. And that’s really what it’s all about.”
The Kids Fun Run will encompass three heats (ages 3 to 5, 6 to 8, and 9 to 12), with ascending degrees of difficulty. The fun begins on the soccer field at 10 a.m. Registration is $15 per child; if registering in person, all registrations must be completed prior to 8:30 a.m. on race day. There will also be a Kids’ Activity Tent, with arts and crafts, face painting and more, for supervised children. Riley Rink is located on Route 7A, in Manchester.
