DULUTH, MN -

Future marathon runners were getting their training in at Bayfront Park on Friday. 

Kids got some photo finishes at the Whipper Snapper Races for kids 14 and under. 

All of the children received an official race number, participation ribbon and a goodie bag. 

The kids were also able to get up close and personal with their favorite mascots as well. 

The event, underway since 1991, gives children the opportunity to experience the sport of running at a young age.
