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!
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!)
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:
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!
