The Essentia Health Fit-n-Fun Run is held each May for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders attending Duluth Public Elementary Schools.
Each year, nearly 2,000 students run 1/4 mile in an end-of-the-year event celebrating all the hard work they put into their physical education classes.
At the end of their race, students are presented with a ribbon and commemorative T-shirt.
