SEATTLE — Seattle area kids and their families, many from the Boys & Girls Club of King County, tested their IRONMAN skills today at the UnitedHealthcare IRONKIDS Seattle Fun Run at Genesee Park in south Seattle.
The kids, ages 3-15, had the opportunity to race on the same course as the IRONGIRLS athletes who will participate in Seattle IRONGIRLS Triathlon, which begins on Sunday. The one-mile fun run is for “triathletes to be” and aims to help stem the rising tide of childhood obesity through exercise and healthy lifestyles.
UnitedHealthcare mascot Dr. Health E. Hound kicked-off the one-mile race, joining participating IRONKIDS in warm-up exercises and cheering on the runners as they crossed the finish line. Read more.
