UnitedHealthcare is teaming up with IRONKIDS for the second annual IRONKIDS Chattanooga Fun Run on Saturday, 9 a.m. EDT at Ross’s Landing, 200 Riverfront Pkwy. Kids ages 3-15 will have the opportunity to race on the same course as IRONMAN 70.3 Chattanooga athletes. The 1-mile and 1/4 -mile fun run is for “triathletes to be” and aims to help stem the rising tide of childhood obesity through exercise and healthy lifestyles. UnitedHealthcare mascot Dr. Health E. Hound will kick off the event with a warmup before the race.
Families and children in Chattanooga and the surrounding areas are encouraged to participate. The cost for registration is $15, and every child receives a T-shirt, race bib, goodie bag and finisher medal. Registration details are available at www.ironkids.com. UnitedHealthcare is providing 50 free admissions to the Boys & Girls Club of Chattanooga, enabling youth to participate in a running event.
