The YMCA of the Northwoods held their second annual Fit Kids Duathlon which consisted of 23 total competitors ages 2-12 for the event. There were three age brackets which included a 5 and under course which was designed to be a fun challenge. Kids age 6-9 consisted of another bracket and ages 10-12 were the final bracket. The two older groups ran 1/3 of a mile, bike one mile, and then ran another 1/3 of a mile. Each competitor received a Fit Kids Duathlon t-shirt, a goodie bag, and Y medal for completing the race.
"It was a wonderful, warm fall evening, for family, friends, and volunteers to gather for the second annual Fit Kids Duathlon," Matt Steingraber (Aquatics, Youth & Family Director) stated in a press release.

"Thanks to Kwik Trip and the US Air Force for supporting YMCA this event," addressed Steingraber. "Thank you to all who participated and volunteered for this fun fall event. Everyone worked hard and finished with a huge smile on their face. They also loved to finish the night with a nice bowl of ice cream to cool down after a great race. All should be proud of their performance. The Y looks forward to next year's event!"
