Kids Race

IMG_1318For the third year the VP Challenge is hosting a free Kids Run!  The race is designed for children up to 11 years old and promises to be exciting. The kids will race over hay bails, through tires, through the mud pit and many more obstacles all between the band shell and the tennis courts.  The kids race will be held directly after the adult races are finished (approximately 10:30).
