Jill Kintner, Olympic BMX racing medalist from Kirkland, will be returning to the home track where she grew up racing to meet local boys and girls who would like to try the sport.

Kintner will appear at the North SeaTac BMX Park, 1811 South 136th Street, SeaTac, at noon on Sept. 27.

The public is invited to get Kintner’s autograph, hear about her Olympic experience and try out BMX racing for free – even ride with her in a ceremonial flag lap during the National Anthem.

BMX racing will follow the beginner clinic and practice session around 3 p.m. New riders will race others their own age and skill.

All kids who race will receive a medal. The first 50 kids to arrive will receive a commemorative T-shirt, which Kintner can autograph.

The City of SeaTac is installing a new flag pole at the park in honor of Jill and her late father, Peter Kintner.

For more information, call 206-243-4411 or visit www.SeaTacBMX.
