Entries Open Now for a global running event for kids from 3 to 14 of all abilities
IRONKIDS Scotland is a series of three fun and family-friendly running events for young people aged 3 to 14 of all abilities.
The new running events being staged on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 June 2018 in Midlothian, East Lothian and Edinburgh are an exciting addition to the IRONMAN 70.3 Edinburgh triathlon race weekend. They are also a key part of Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 celebrations.
Organisers are inviting young people to sign up to race at one of the venues and enjoy the running, the challenge, the competition and the camaraderie with their friends, as well as the family entertainment and sports taster sessions that will be laid on.
The IRONKIDS Scotland events have a firm focus on participation for all with age group races of between 500m and 2km. Each event will incorporate a strong family element with spectator friendly courses, free live entertainment, activities and sports taster sessions, whilst at the same time inspiring children to lead a healthy and active lifestyle.
