While adults get ready to run the course Saturday morning, kids have the opportunity to run races of their own with the Whipper Snapper Races scheduled for Friday, June 21, 2013.

The races take place at the Bayfront Festival Park on Duluth’s Waterfront. The races are free to attend and participate in, and offer the opportunity for young ones to be a part of the big weekend. Children will run short dashes at Bayfront, with all participants receiving a ribbon for participating in the races.

Registration begins at Noon and races start at 2:00 p.m. For more information call the Grandma’s Marathon office at (218) 727-0947.
