Kid-friendly race coming to Weston
Outdoor racing isn’t just for adults. We have a new event combining biking and running in kid-friendly distances.

It’s designed to promote healthy living and your entry fee supports our Community Partners Campaign.
Health and Wellness Director at the Woodson YMCA- Wausau Branch, Melissa Hoffman spearheaded the event in order to offer the chance for area kids to have their very own race.
