Wheeling Waterfront Trail
Never thought you could win a race? Now you CAN! If you REALLY want a unique, one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted award, we want you to try and buy it! It’s simple: Just pay your low entry fee and donate just a little extra (may be $5.00, could be $10.00, might be $21.00; who knows?) Tell us which award you want your extra donation to go to (1st Place Male or Female, Runner or Walker—four total). The highest donation collected from each category will win it! All four winners will also get to choose their prize packet which will include a door prize (or two...or three!), and a Free Entry to another race. The HIGHEST donation will also win an authentic PITTSBURGH STEELERS JERSEY! All money collected helps the fundraising efforts of your OVRWC!
MONDAY NIGHT RUN / WALKS ARE BACK!!
The switch to Daylight Savings Time means that we are back at Heritage Port on Monday nights! We meet in the parking lot across the street from the flag pole. We gather around 5:15pm and leave at 5:30pm. Watch our Facebook page to see updates.
No one runs or walks alone!
For information on the group run/walk events, please contact Jana by email or phone at 304-639-5738.
URGENT GRAND PRIX NOTICE FOR 2015
The Glow for Goal, Debbie Green, and Barkcamp races will not be part of the 2015 Grand Prix Series. With these changes, we will revert back to the 10 point system. Once an entrant accumulates 10 points within their category, they are automatically eligible to attend and receive awards at the annual "Taking Strides Towards Better Health" Grand Prix banquet.
CLUB RACE SHIRTS
Jana placed the initial order for the new race shirts and is planning to order more. The shirts are gender specific tech shirts with a weave type of material. We're told that they run a little small. They are sapphire blue with a silver/gray logo on the front and with the words "Your pace or mine?" on the back. They come in two styles: tank and short sleeve. Price is $18.50 with a $2 extra charge for XXL. To order, please contact Jana by email or phone at 304-639-5738. Please specify gender, size, and style.
Join us for a trail run/walk in Barkcamp State Park! Check out The Barkcamp Race on Facebook for information about weekend group runs and weekday individual hookups.
