7th Quad Kids
Quad Kids helps build character and confidence and character in children.
It gives kids the chance to compete in their own race - showing them what’s possible when they push through to the finish, allowing the youngest of aspiring athletes to be a part of the Mt. Taylor Winter Quadrathlon.
Boys and girls, from the ages of 3 to 12 years-old, compete in a three part-race, consisting of a bike ride, obstacle course and run.
We have boys and girls categories for each age group.
All racers will receive a finisher’s medal for completing the race! T-shirts will be given on a first come, first serve basis. First place in each age group win a new bike.
A goal of Quad Kids is to instill a sense of confidence in the kids in our community. We give them a challenge and cheer them on through obstacles - literally, we have an obstacle course - to teach them they are more capable than they realized. We want the children in our community to feel comfortable trying things. We want them to believe in and feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, kids today are dealing with a lot that’s trying to make them feel worse about themselves, including bullies.
Almost half (49 percent) of kids in grades 4-9 have reportedly experienced bullying at least once in the past month, according to the CDC. Despite tonight anti-bullying laws, about 18 percent of kids experience bullying at a school and 14 are cyber bullied.
To help raise awareness about the impacts of bullying, we will be giving out blue ribbons and anti-bullying bracelets in registration packets for the Quad Kids race. We have 150 bracelets and 250 ribbons - they will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
