TROY — Although storms could be seen in the distance, it didn’t stop the Troy Strawberry Festival Super Kids Competition.
The competition, hosted by Can’t Stop Running in Piqua, was for children ages 3-12, who raced to beat the rain in the free competition.
The course changed with each age group — hula hoops became tires, balance beams posed a challenge for all, the wall for the kids to climb over became higher, and the obstacle course was no easy task for anyone. However, the kids pulled through resiliently.
“My favorite part was the obstacle course. I had to crawl under the ribbons and through smoke, too,” said Landry Niles, winner of the 7-to-8-year-old age group.
The kids pushed through and had a great time, even earning prizes for their hard work.
Each child that participated in the Super Kids Competition earned a participation ribbon for defeating the difficulties of completing the entire course.
The winner of each age group, boys and girls, received a medal for their hard work. Two other children were randomly selected from each age group and were awarded medals as well. Strawberry Queen Jasmeen Gill and the queen’s court handed out the medals to the participants.
