The FROG HOP is a “virtual race” in a run-bike-run format in Douglas, MN. The “virtual” part comes in because this will be set up as a race you can complete anytime you want during the set time-frame. This is one last chance to get in a low-key race before the snow comes. But, more importantly, this is an opportunity to raise funds to help the Minellis, a local family whose daughter was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (DIPG). Carin and Mario have been providing care for their daughter round the clock and we wanted to do something to show our support. We will be donating 100% of the proceeds to the family to help with expenses.
You can complete both the bike and the runs as an individual or find a friend to team up with you. Can’t find a friend to do the part you don’t want to do? Let us know and we’ll hook you up with a cyclist or runner for your team. The race is open to all ages.
Complete your race any time between 18 September and 27 September. TriRochester will have some volunteers out to watch your bike while you run and to provide some snacks on...
