Junior BIX

Posted: Updated:

On Friday, the tradition of giving the future BIX 7 runners a chance in the spotlight continued.

In the 16th Annual Alcoa Junior Bix in downtown Davenport, several thousand kids 12 and under laced up their running shoes to participate.
     
Different age groups ran or walked anywhere from 70 yards to 7/10ths of a mile. It's a way to get the whole family involved in BIX excitement.

"Teaching her running and exercising a lot and just run and keep herself going because she has a lot of energy," said parent Ciera Ruby.

Each junior Bixer gets an official Bix t-shirt and a victory medal.
