Please be aware that WRWM registration will close at either 1,500 registrations or Midnight, July 22nd, whichever comes first. We hate to limit, but we have to be sure we don't have more ladies than we can safely train, and we need to be sure ladies sign up early enough in the program to get full benefit of the training before running the Graduation 5K.
WRWM will kick off with our annual EXPO on Monday,
July 1, 2013 5-7pm at the AgriCenter International.
Here you will have a chance to register (if you haven't already), meet the coaches and have any of your questions answered, purchase technical wear, learn from local running stores about shoes and proper running apparel and visit vendors and sponsors booths.
Pacing-oriented training will begin Monday July 8th and meet every Monday evening at 6:30pm from July 8th through August 26th (NO training on Labor Day, Sept. 2nd).
