Outdoor fun for kids age 8-16! Mountain Biking, Canoeing, Orienteering, Outdoor Skills, Rock wall & zip line!
The Endura DINO Mountain Bike Series offers numerous options for kids.
The easiest level is the Kids Race - an easy, short course (1/4 to 1/2 mile) for kids age 12 and under. It's free and everyone gets a small award. On series race days, the Kids Race starts at 1:30 pm.
Next is the Junior division, with three age groups: 10 & under, 11-14, and 15-18. Awards are separated for girls and boys. Junior 11-14 and 15-18 start at 12:16 or 12:44 pm; 10 & under at 12:18 or 12:46 pm. (see http://www.dinoseries.com/mtbchart.pdf for details) The Junior course is typically 5 to 7 miles long.
Boys ready to race a bit longer can move up to Cat3 men, where age groups 14 & under and 15-18 are available. Cat3 men race 8 to 14 miles.
Girls and boys 15 and older can also race in Cat2 when ready. Age groups start with 15-18 in Cat 2.
The DINO Trail Run Series is a welcome place for young runners! Many kids age 5 to 10 run in the 5k distance. We've had finishers as young as 4 years old! Parents are encouraged to run along with the youngest children, but they are welcome to run on their own when they are ready to do so.
Our youngest age divisions are: 0-9, 10-12, 13-15, and 16-19.
We also have a FREE DINO Kids Run - for kids under age 12 who don't run the full 5k distance. The DINO Kids Run starts at 10:30 at each DINO Trail Run Series race, and is 1/4 to 1/2 mile of easy to moderate trail (or grass). Each participant gets a small medal or other participation award. Registration is required at the race check-in area.
