According to VRD KEEN Vail Kids Adventure Race Director Beth Pappas, spots are filling quickly for the second annual race. "Last year we sold out and had a waiting list, so we're encouraging families to sign their children up early," said Pappas. "This summer's race is going to be bigger and better than last year's with new challenges, new features and fun for the entire family. We feel like this might be the coolest kid's race in the country and we're looking forward to race day."
The race will begin at 9 a.m. at the base of Vail Mountain in Vail Village. Registration is $150 per team of two and teams will be divided into three age groups; six to seven years old, eight to nine years old and 10 to 12 years old. Registration will be limited to 100 teams and is available by clicking here or calling the VRD at 970-479-2880.
