PORT ANGELES — A total of 43 kids came out to a new venue at the Peninsula College campus for the third Little Hurt competition Sunday.
In the Little Hurt, kids from the first through the eighth grades competed in varying distances on a bike ride around the campus, rowing on rowing machines contributed by the Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association, then went on a one-mile to two-mile run around the campus. The event is done in conjunction with the Big Hurt, a multi-discipline endurance race which took place on the Olympic Peninsula on Saturday.
“The new venue at Peninsula College was great and we hope to work with Peninsula College to have it there again next year. It is such a beautiful campus,” said race director Lorrie Mittmann.
The event was held at the Lincoln Park BMX Park in past years but moved to the Peninsula College campus because Lincoln Park was hosting a huge state BMX championship.
