DULUTH, MN-- Grandma's Marathon weekend has something for everyone, that includes kids.

Friday morning, Bayfront Park held what's called the Whipper Snapper race.

Grandma's Whipper Snapper hosts kids as old as 14 to run one of a couple of pre-marked courses ranging from 100 to 400-meters.

Nick Prior, traveling from Arizona, said he is enjoying Duluth so far, but his favorite part was winning today's race.

"My most favorite would be racing, I tried to run as fast as I could to win the race," said Prior.

Prior has family running the half and full marathons this weekend.
