Kids to Hit the Track at the U of M Fieldhouse

Even though the Gopher track and field teams will be on the road this weekend, that doesn't mean the University of Minnesota Fieldhouse will be quiet.

Hundreds of grade-schoolers will descend on the facility Saturday morning for the TC Kids Indoor Fun Run sponsored by Twin Cities in Motion, the organizers of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon. The event features mile and half-mile runs for kids.

The event, an effort to promote running and healthy lifestyles for youngsters, will feature mascots, medals, the Radio Disney Party Patrol, and athletes from the University of Minnesota track and field teams and Team USA Minnesota.
