On Sunday, July 31, 2011 children ages 5 to 15 years will be running and biking as part of Run & Ride @ CambridgeSide duathlon event. Children who love to run and ride their bike are invited to compete in the second annual, kids only Cambridge duathlon taking place in and around CambridgeSide Galleria.
In February, Cambridge signed on to the First Lady’s Let’s Move! campaign, which aims to solve the problem of childhood obesity within a generation. Run & Ride at CambridgeSide promotes active health and fitness for children. This event is an innovative community collaboration between CambridgeSide Galleria, City of Cambridge, Cambridge Public Health Department, Cambridge Police Department, Cambridge Fire Department, baystateparent magazine and Endurance Coaching. The event features prizes, race t-shirts, giveaways, entertainment and fun for the whole family. The race is free for all participants.
A duathlon is an athletic event that consists of a running leg, followed by a cycling leg and then another running leg in a format bearing some resemblance to a traditional triathlon without the swimming. Although races will not be timed, this duathlon is a USAT sanctioned event. All abilities are welcome.
