Down for the challenge: Autumnfest begins with Kids Challenge event

October 12, 2013

WOONSOCKET -- Triathlon athlete Skylar Plante of Woonsocket has been training hard over the past week, working out under the watchful eye of her doting grandparents who moved the furniture around in their parlor so Plante could practice her sprinting in between episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants.

On Saturday, Plante’s training didn’t exactly pay off – she came in last place in the Autumnfest Kids Challenge’s Wee Race, a challenge event for younger kids ages 3-6 – but it hardly mattered.
