We have had racer in the Quicksilver Challenge Kids race ever since Hayley was six years old. Now we have four in the race. Hayley is about to age out: turning 13 before next years race, she will have to become a spectator or graduate up to the 10k. The race is a one mile out and back course on a rolling fire road. The kids are always excited about this race because they usually get some pretty nice goodies at the end. I like it because it is free.
Seth beat Hayley last year - which I think she took pretty hard, getting beat by her then six year old brother. This being her last year, she decided she was going to go all out and take back the crown as the fastest Johnson kid miler.
|Small turnout this year. But it is a fierce group of competitors!|
And they're off:
|Don't know this kids name, but by the looks of it he might be one of the well trained quicksilver cross country boys. The kids all agreed - he was fast. He had a pretty comfortable margin for the win.|
|Seth charged up the last hill to the finish like a little dude on a mission. Apparently he ran with Hayley for most of the race and then decided to drop her like a bad habit and flew to the finish line for second place.|
|This little girl ran with beautiful form and took it out hard with Seth on the opening downhill. Well done.|
|Blake chugged up the hill with a determined pump. He was ready for a donut!|
|Ada ended up getting into a little bit of a sprint at the end, dueling another determined gal for a finish.|
|Notice Ada relaxing HARD in the background. They earned their goodies!|
