Minneapolis, MN


Holy Smokes! What an UNBELIEVABLE time in Minneapolis, MN at our third race of the 2019 Strider Cup. This 4th of July weekend made for an incredible day for racing, making new friends, and having fun! The Commons, by US Bank Stadium, was filled kiddos putting their striding skills on display for the eager crowd of friends and family. Nearly 200 registered racers zoomed through and around the race course on Saturday. These tykes were going so fast, they were setting off their own fireworks! We absolutely could not do these events without you and your support, and we’re extremely grateful. So, a big THANK YOU to everyone who came out!!! We hope you have a wonderful time! Seeing all those happy, smiling faces riding their hearts out is just a small part of why we do this. New Strider champions were crowned in the 2-and-under, 3-, and 4-year-old classes. A big THANK YOU goes out to the Commons and the City of Minneapolis for giving everyone a day of riding, racing, and making new friends!

Our next stop is Surrey, British Columbia on August 17th! Also, don’t forget that everyone who participated is welcome to attend the Strider Cup World Championship in Charlotte, NC October 5th and 6th!
