The Papoose Club will hold the 59th Annual KinderCup on Sunday, March 1st. The event will take place at Sun Valley’s Dollar Mountain.
This iconic piece of Sun Valley history has been going on since 1957. This free fun event is for non-sanctioned racers ages 3-12. Registration, check in and bib pick up are at 8:30, and the racers will start around 10:15 (once everyone is checked in).
There will be a medal ceremony for the top three racers in each category that will be held as close to 12:30 as possible and as soon as the industrious volunteers can tally the hand-recorded race times. Volunteers are encouraged as this is a big event to organize and manage – contact Louise Isaacs, chair of the KinderCup to sign up! (email@example.com, 720-5931)
“I am awed by the community history of this race,” says Isaacs. “My kids raced it, many Papoose members raced in it as kids, even the Olympic gold medal winner Picabo Street was a Kindercup champion!”
The KinderCup is a free community service event put on by Papoose Club volunteers in partnership with the Sun Valley Race Dept. and the SVSEF.
“Please wear costumes!” says Isaacs. “It is so festive when the kids and adults get creative and colorful with their costumes. We love it!”
