Registration Open for Kids Turtle Hurdle Race
Kids of all ages will be allowed and even encouraged to play in the mud in February.
“The Turtle Hurdle,” is organized especially for kids by TriKidsRock and will feature 15 fun and child-friendly, muddy obstacles on a half-mile closed course.
“The kids have an amazing time running through the muddy obstacle course, while unknowingly incorporating strength training and cardiovascular fitness components," says Eve "IronMom" Barrett, race organizer.
The event is on Sunday, Feb. 19 at 9 a.m. at the Walter Fuller Soccer Fields (on the southeast fields) located at 2800 75th St N, St. Petersburg.
Each child receives a medal and a turtle charm of Tucker (TKR) the Turtle (the TriKidsRock mascot). There will also be a post-race breakfast for everyone.
The Turtle Hurdle race is open to children ages 4 through 14. Participants can register online at IMathlete.com (Category: Other Events in St. Petersburg).
This is the second Turtle Hurdle being put on by TriKidsRock. The first one took place in Dunedin last October and was a sold-out event.
