The Essentia Health Fit-n-Fun Run is held each May for third, fourth and fifth graders attending Duluth Public Elementary Schools. Each year nearly 2,000 students run a quarter of a mile in celebration of the end of the school year and the hard work they put forth in their physical education classes.
At the end of their race, students are presented with a ribbon and commemorative T-shirt.
The Fit-n-Fun Run is presented by Essentia Health. Additional support is provided by Duluth Public Schools, Advantage Emblem & Screen Printing, the Young Athletes Foundation and Grandma’s Marathon.
