SPONSORED POST: Save the date for what has become a Spring tradition as the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC) welcomes runners of all talent levels for its 4th annual Wonder Run 5k and Kids Fun Run, race slated for Sunday, May 21 at 8:30am. The race starts at Wellesley High School, and if speed is your goal, there’s still plenty of opportunity to train. If you’re built more for comfort, carry on as usual and just show up and jog or walk the course.
One of the great things about the Wonder Run is the wholesome, party atmosphere it brings with it. People run singly, shaking off the winter doldrums, or in large, raucous groups. You’ll see plenty of parents pushing strollers, triumphant kids crossing the finish line of their first-ever 5k (I’m getting teary just thinking of it), and everybody simply celebrating Spring and the sheer joy of movement.
The race, which starts at the Wellesley High School track, takes runners on a scenic tour of town while helping organizer WHJWC provide scholarships and other charitable aid. The Kids Fun Run, which takes place on the High School track at 9:30am, promises fun for the youngest of runners. Sensei Nicco DeMasco will be on hand with kid-friendly activities before the event. The Wonder Run is fun for the whole family!
Online pre-registration is $30 (Wonder Run 5K) and $10 (Kids Fun Run) and is now available. Register early to secure your Wonder Run 5K T-Shirt! The first 250 5K registrants will receive a race t-shirt and a water bottle. For questions about the Wonder Run road race, please contact the event directors at wellesleywonderrun@gmail.
