Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
The 20th Annual Auggie's 5K Run & Walk benefits the programming of the Ohio County Animal Shelter. The flat and fast course, which commences and ends at Warwood Middle School, is on Wheeling's Heritage Trail along the Ohio River. Essentially, runners and walkers have separate, out-and-back courses, despite starting and finishing in the same area. Runners run north on the paved trail, and walkers walk south. There will be post-race refreshments and door prizes.
