This action-packed exhibit created by the Minnesota Children's Museum will give your mind AND body a workout. Just in time for the 2016 Olympics, train like an action star and use the adventure scenes to get moving! Some features you'll experience: Balance: Surf/Snow • Choose one of the four balance boards and see how long you can stay on for the ride. Can you make it down a snow slope, through the air, into the ocean and onto shore without losing your balance? Which board was the easiest/most difficult to maintain your balance? Strength: Climbing Canyon • Use your hands and feet to make your way across a horizontal climbing wall. Choose from four paths: Toddler Trail, Rugged Ridge and Extreme Expanse to find the hidden treasure. Coordination: Kung Fu Forest • Try the three animal stances: rooster, snake, tiger in the bamboo forest. Once you have learned all three, combine them into a flow of action. Endurance: Flycycle Sky • Ride a bicycle with wings and see how far you can go in two minutes. Can you light up all the stars in the sky? Action Star Training • Yoga Station: Balance on one foot in the tree pose. Try and stretch into cat, cow, bridge and dog pose.

Test how many chin-ups you are able to do at the chin-up bar. Dance Club • Choose dance moves and music, follow the dancer on the screen or go freestyle. Put your finger in the pulse monitor.

In 2015 the Vermont City Marathon & Relay celebrated its 27th running, and just like the people who don a bib, it’s still going strong after all those miles. The course winds through the city streets of Burlington, and includes spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and lake. Run as little as three miles or as many as 26.2. Run for a cause, with a friend or for yourself. - See more at: http://www.vtchamber.com/networking-events/Top_Ten_Events_details.aspx?EventID=5109#sthash.BCAifVQo.dpuf
