WCP Fun Run
Thank you to everyone who joined up for the 2019 WCP Fun Run on Sunday, May 5th! The fabulous weather and enthusiasm from everyone who participated made for a great event, we can’t wait to invite everyone back to The Parks for another fun run.
About the 2019 event:
The 2019 WCP Fun Run presented an opportunity to embrace spring and get outdoors with friends and family! This event offered timed 10K and 5K options for those who like to get competitive, as well as 5K and 2K walk/run options that were not timed and all about having fun! All courses extended across our rural grounds here at Wesley Clover Parks.
Participants were encouraged to get their family, friends and colleagues together to dress up and show off their team spirit. We awarded prizes to the fastest runners, most spirited participants, and canine companions!
Race results: special thanks to Running Goat Timing for their timing services!
