Como Park Hosts Saturday’s Medtronic TC Kids Cross Country Fun Run

More than a thousand active youngsters will participate in Saturday’s Medtronic TC Kids Cross Country Fun Run. Kids from kindergarten through eighth grade will compete in half-mile, mile and two-mile events on the rolling, grassy terrain of Como Park.  The event serves as the capstone achievement for kids participating in the Medtronic TC Kids Marathon, an online training program designed to get families and classrooms exercising.

The racing is all in good, healthy fun.  Harry and Shelly, Twin Cities in Motion’s tortoise and hare mascots, will get in on the fun along with the Radio Disney’s Prize Patrol. Professional runners from Team USA Minnesota--Jon Peterson, Jon Grey, Chris Rombough, Meghan Peyton, McKenzie Melander,  and Ladia Albertson-Junkans--will lead warm-ups!
