So parents of youngsters can get their kids bitten by the running bug too in a fun albeit muddy way.
Tomorrow is the inaugural Turtle Hurdle at Highlander Park. Youngsters can run in a closed course in the mud.
Not only can the kids run in the mud -- without mom yelling at them -- the course is also an obstacle course. After the race, all the racers can enjoy a free breakfast.
The race starts at 8 a.m. Registration is $25 at the race. Registration at the race begins at 6:30 a.m.
