by Colleen Lawler

 

 
Runners and Walkers This is For You

5kThe 2012 event season for the City of Wildwood is just about comes to a close with the Wildwood Route 66 5K Run/Walk and the Kids Fun Run 1K! November 3, 2012 is the date and is its 11th year. It starts at 8:00 AM sharp and it takes place at the Wildwood Middle School, 17401 Manchester Road, Wildwood, MO 63038. These days there are many running events on any Saturday and Sunday, but the Route 66 5K Run/Walk is slightly different than the rest%u2026it is organized for the participants and their enjoyment! Its a great opportunity to enjoy a Saturday morning outdoors and it's really a great family event. Whether you are a recreational runner, a social walker, or a competitive contender for overall finishing awards, the Route 66 5K Run/Walk will fit your needs! The event offers the opportunity for participants to Run/Walk on Historic Route 66, without the worry of traffic concerns. Walkers are welcome and encouraged! There is no finish time pressure other than what you place on yourself! Just think of the problems you and a partner can solve during a three (3) mile walk!!

With awards for the first five (5) finishers in each age group, it offers a great chance for recreational runners to push their limits a little and maybe bring home an exceptional finisher plaque! Competitive runners should not overlook this race! The course offers a subtle challenge to those in the best physical and running condition! The first three (3) men and women to finish will receive overall prizes!!!

The 5K is followed by a Kids Fun Run 1K! It's quick, fun, and can be finished by everyone! Finisher medals will be given to all participants!! There is no cost for the Fun Run, but please register the young runners, so plans can be made for finisher medals.

There will be plenty of refreshments available before and after the run, Precision Health Group will be on site to address minor aches and pains before and after the run, and music will be provided at the race start/finish to make sure everyone is pumped up and ready for a great event!! This year there will be some fantastic long sleeve performance shirts for the 5K participants, but there is a limited supply%u2026 so register early!

There is a lot going on over the next month in St Louis.  I can't wait for the annual Art Fair in Clayton the weekend after Labor Day...great art, interesting people, and wonderful food.

    And the Balloon Race at Forest Park, and a Trip to Wine Country is a must this time of year.  I have to admit I work most weekends and have to live vicariously through my friends, family and clients.  I always HOPE I can find the time to enjoy a couple of hours here and there this time of year in STL.

In Wildwood, this weekend is Founder's Day, with a Parade in the morning and things to do (and eat!) at Town Center. 

On the 8th of September there is a 5 K walk...I took the liberty of cut/paste so you can read about it and register if you like:

 

BANDANA BASH/CITY OF WILDWOOD 5K WALK. This inaugural event benefits two local charities - Friends of Kids with Cancer and Leukemia 24/7 who are committed to helping children with cancer, as well as furthering the research and care for cancer diseases. The walk will start at Lafayette High School and will travel east from there through nearby subdivisions to Zicks Great Outdoors. At the finish, all walkers will be treated to a pancake breakfast at no charge and shuttle service back to the school. All of this fun - for a good cause - comes with only a $25.00 donation, which all goes to the two (2) aforementioned charities. The fee also allows you to receive a high-quality T-shirt commemorating the event and refreshments before and after the walk. You can register for the 5K now at http://cl.exactt.net/?qs=a4eb7b74607971d314090849db2f8e389cae1bbe032503bc976c710dfacba485. More details regarding this event can be found at http://www.cityofwildwood.com/.
This walk is part of the larger Bandana Bash Event that is held at Zicks Great Outdoors, located at 16498 Clayton Road (at the intersection of Clayton Rd. and Strecker Rd.).
