The Eppie's Kids Duathlon is presented each year to inspire healthy, active choices and promote fun, physical activity through running and cycling on the American River Parkway.

Children in age brackets from 4 – 13 years are invited to run and cycle on special courses around Sacramento’s Discovery Park and the American River Parkway. The Duathlon course allows parents and friends to watch and cheer on their kid competitors throughout the races. As soon as the competitors cross the finish line, the whole family will enjoy fun, hands-on cooking and gardening activities, fitness obstacle courses, bounce houses and climbing walls.
