This Weekend In Utah: An Outdoor Event With Your Little People In Mind

Check out this awesome event for your whole family this weekend!

Strider Race

Strider Race

The race is hosted by Scheels and Strider corp. and is being held at the Adventure+Gear Fest (South Town Expo) on Saturday April 9th. It’s only $12 (with tax, $15 at the door) and each registration gets the rider and an adult free entry to the Adventure+Gear Fest, $10-$15 value (more on A+G below).  Kids will need to bring their own bikes (it can be any balance bike) and helmet.  The track is a lot of fun, will be MC’d and every kid gets something for participating.  We have hosted smaller versions of this in the past and they are awesome for the riders and fun to watch.
