- One type of potato you couldn't find at Potato Fest this year was a couch potato. Leaders at the YMCA of the Northwoods helped promote health and staying active by putting on the second annual couch potato race.
Teams of racers had to build a moving couch and push it down Brown Street in downtown Rhinelander. They also had to finish obstacle courses along the way.
YMCA leaders believe the race is a fun event that gets people moving.
"At the YMCA, we always encourage physical activity, healthy living, and social responsibility. This event brings all of those things together," said YMCA interim CEO, Laurie Schlitt.
This year's turnout wasn't as big as last year's. But YMCA leaders think more people will come give the race a try in the future.
