The Door County YMCA encourages people to live a healthier lifestyle every day, but over Labor Day Weekend, they dare everyone to compete. Do you dare attempt a ½-mile children’s run, 5k run/walk or duathlon on Saturday, Sept. 5?
If so, registration opens June 1 for the Door County YMCA’s Labor Day Weekend Duathlon & 5k held at the Northern Door Program Center, located at 3866 Gibraltar Road, Fish Creek. Sponsored by Ministry Door County Medical Center, the events kick off at 8 am with the duathlon, which includes a two-mile run, 12-mile bike and 2-mile run, followed by the 5k run/walk at 9:45 am and wrap up with the ½-mile children’s run at 10:15 am. An award ceremony will immediately follow the children’s run. Participants in the duathlon and 5k will be awarded age group awards, and every participant in the children’s run will receive a medal. Refreshments, including root beer floats, and t-shirts will be provided to participants.
