Time to sign up to run

Returning for its third year, the Wally Waddle is fast becoming a local favorite for both its location and its awards. The Wally Waddle will be held on May 13th at Vassar Farms in Poughkeepsie, NY and is run primarily on a gently rolling dirt road. In keeping with Waddle tradition instead of medals, ribbons or trophies overall and age group 5k winners will be awarded fresh baked pies. There will also be a free pie raffle after the award ceremony with your bib number serving as your raffle number.

In addition to the 5k race, there will also be 2 free kids’ races. A 1 mile for kids 13 and younger and a 100 yard dash for kids 9 and younger which will be held 30 minutes before the start of the 5k. Last year we had over 30 kids participate in the 2 races and hope to grow that even more this year.

All of the money raised by the Waddle goes toward providing scholarships for local children to attend Camp Wa Wa. Last summer 6 area children were able to attend camp Segowea who would not otherwise been able to because of your support.

Please come out on Sunday May 13th to support the Waddle and Camp Segowea. You can run on a scenic course, compete for pies, and know you’re helping give a local child the life-changing opportunity to attend summer camp.
