SPONSORED POST: It’s finally almost here. The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC) 5th annual Wonder Run 5k and Kids Fun Run is set to take place on Sunday, May 20. The 5k starts at 8:30am at the Wellesley High School track and takes runners and walkers on a scenic tour of town. The Kids Fun Run, which takes place on the High School track, starts at 9:30am.
Remember last month when you felt so bad for the Boston Marathoners as they sloshed through town in the sleet and the pouring rain, shivering in the hypothermia-inducing 30-degree temperatures? Well, the WHJWC has arranged the type of day when the only shock to your system will be when you discover that, wow, your entire family is really pretty good at this running thing.
Whether you’re one of those intense in it to win it types or you just want to low-key get out there, one thing stays the same in this race — all proceeds help organizer WHJWC provide scholarships and other charitable aid. In 2017, the group gave away $143,000 — $72,000 in scholarships and $71,000 in grants.
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 300 5K registrants will receive a race t-shirt.
