UnitedHealthcare IronKids Lake Placid Fun Run
IronKids will work with the New York Ski Education Foundation to produce the new 2013 UnitedHealthcare IronKids Lake Placid Fun Run.
About the Event:
The NYSEF IronKids Fun Run is an age-appropriate fun race for “triathletes to be” held annually during the Ironman Lake Placid week. Participating young athletes will run along portions of the same course as the real Ironman race.
The Fun Run takes place around the Mirror Lake Public Beach Area, at the start of the real Ironman.
Saturday, July 27, 2013
Distances for the IronKids Fun Run will vary depending on the age of participants:
Registration will be located adjacent to Mirror Lake near the starting line. We will have an IronKids tent set up for on-site registrations. All athletes must check-in at packet pick-up in order to receive their race materials. IronKids staff as well as volunteers will be present to assist you throughout the process
Registration will take place from 11:00 AM to 1:30 PM. Please allow yourself 10 to 15 minutes to completely register.
The run course will be an out and back format with multiple turn around locations for the different age groups. Please know which division you and in and the correct turn around location for your event.
Course Maps Coming Soon!
The cost to enter the NYSEF IronKids Lake Placid Fun Run is $10. A portion of every race entry will go to benefit the Ironman Foundation and the New York Ski Education Foundation.
Each athlete will receive an IronKids race bib, an IronKids finishers medal, post race refreshments and the pride of calling themselves an IronKid!
The mission of IronKids is to inspire and motivate youth through the sport to lead an active, positive, and healthy lifestyle. The 2013 IronKids National Series and the Hy-Vee IronKids Midwest Series presented by Dole, targeting youth between the ages of 6-15, will provide an interactive weekend experience for the entire family that will not only showcase the nation’s top youth talent, but also will allow first-time athletes to experience a positive introduction to the realm of multisport. Children will compete in age-appropriate distances with an emphasis on fitness, fun and safety.
