Thanks kids, parents of Capture the Crown race

On June 15, 22 fleet-footed kids took to the Crown Mountain paved path to “Capture the Crown” in age-specific bracketed races. Our fastest runner completed the one-mile loop in 6 minutes, 47 seconds. Crown Mountain Park would like to recognize the quick kids and their supportive parents who came out to participate in the event. The cool summer morning weather was perfect for everyone to stretch their legs and lungs. It was fun to witness the up-and-coming athleticism in our local children. Each child received a medal and the right to claim conquest of the Crown Mountain Park path in all its lengths. Pictures of the event have been posted to Crown Mountain Park’s Facebook page. Check them out, and come see if you can conquer the path — running, walking, strolling, skipping or just enjoying the summer weather. We’ll see you next year, but in the meantime, check out the Crown Mountain Park website and like us on Facebook to stay up to date on all of our upcoming programs.
