Never too early to think about Waddling

As summer turns to fall, our minds drift to thoughts of fresh picked apples , which in turn leads us to think about pies, which of course leads us to think about the 5th Annual Wa Wa Wally Waddle 5k!

Pie!

Pie!

While May is admittedly a long way off I’ve already begun planning for the 2014 Wally Waddle (actually I started planning for it  “waaaaay laaaast Maaaaayy” sorry couldn’t resist a little camp humor!)

2013 was the most competitive waddle yet.

2013 was the most competitive waddle yet.

The 2013 Waddle was a great success, even without the presence of yours truly.  I promise I’ll be there in 2014 running the show with new improvements to our ever growing event.

Focus on Moms.

The 2014 Waddle will have a new awards category, with a focus on moms.  As the Waddle is run on Mother’s Day every year, we thought it would be nice to give all those smoking fast moms out there a chance to win a special prize.   We will be giving away a free brunch at a local eatery (if you are an eatery and would like to sponsor this prize let us know!) to the Mother/Daughter and Mother/Son teams that have the fastest combined time in the 5k.

Also to help out mom  (and I suppose dad), YMCA Camp Segowea staff and alumni will be available to keep your kids busy while you run.  We will have a number of fun activities for kids ages 3+ taking place on the rugby field during the 5k race.

5 Year Awards

To celebrate our 5th year doing the Wally Waddle we will be presenting special, to be determined, awards to anyone who has finished all 5 years.  The short list of people who have done the first 4 years is:

Easton, David,
Fiege, Michael
Goran, Steven
Hodus, Jon,
Korzyk, Zach
Lange, Cheryl
Meluch, Andrew
Mittleman, Elisha

If I have left you off the list and you have finished the Waddle each of the last 4 years please let me know.

Stay tuned for more updates and have a great fall racing season!
