Young runners ages 4 to 11 have a chance to explore training at kid-sized distances at a free event sponsored by Prairie Striders Running Club, Brookings Park and Recreation and Oakwood Lakes Trail Run.

The new event, directed by Andy Carlson, director of Oakwood Lakes Trail Run, is 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9, at Dakota Nature Park. Runners will use the single track mountain bike course. Parents are asked to park in the Outdoor Adventure Center/softball complex parking lot.

Carlson urges children to “experience the thrill of going off the path with your friends.” No advance registration is required.

Age groups and distances: Preschool-first grade (alpine marmots) — one-third of a mile; second and third grade (mountain goats) — two-thirds of mile; fourth – sixth grade (bighorn sheep) — one mile.
