Eppie's Kids Duathlon is a run and bike race, held along the American River Parkway, for kids aged four through thirteen. It is held on the third Sunday of every October. By participating in the duathlon, youngsters find out for themselves that healthy outdoor activities are fun, exciting, and rewarding. The end goal is to help them improve their fitness. The Eppie's Kids Duathlon provides children with their own event with three different distances depending on age. An adaptive division has been added for children with developmental and physical disabilities.
All entrants will receive a unique Eppie's Kids Duathlon t-shirt, finish ribbon, lunch and post-race entertainment. Overall male and female winners of each race will receive custom plaques. The top 3 male and female finishers in each single age will receive custom medallions.
While Eppie's Great Race will not take place after its 2018 event, Eppie's Kid Duathlon plans to continue to take place as an annual event.
