Family Sports & Fitness – Family Friendly Races, Walks & Tournaments


Family Sports and Fitness are a great way to spend time together. We keep a running list of events that have been submitted to us here. We have also included some product links for items we feel may help families promote fitness. We do receive compensation from Amazon for purchases through these links.

Family Sports Events in the Twin Cities

If you have a sporting event you would like to share, please keep in mind our parameters and mission. Events must be something that can be participated in as a family and it must be a stand-alone event with no long-term commitment. Please feel free to email Joy with your submissions
