The Wishbone 5k is JUST AROUND THE CORNER and we want to share just a few of the exciting changes that will be happening this year.

The biggest change for us is that our Play & Learn Area is available for child care for your little ones!  For those who participate in this year’s event, our Play & Learn area will be OPEN for child drop off and pick up.  IMPORTANT:  If you wish to use Play & Learn, you MUST PREREGISTER AT MEMBER SERVICES BEFORE Thursday, November 23 so that we can be appropriately staffed.  Children ages 6 weeks through 10 yrs are welcome to be a part of Play & Learn that morning.
Additionally this year, there will be a new Senior Stroll Route, so that all Senior Strollers will end at the official finish line!  This route will follow the path of the Wishbone route to Lantern Road, and will then turn south on Lantern and enter Sunblest Farms neighborhood and follow the route to the finish line in front of the American Legion parking lot.
Although not NEW, just a reminder that all participants will receive a long-sleeve event t-shirt.   An email was sent this on Nov 6 indicating that all participants would also receive a finisher medal.  However, finisher medals are only for the KIDDIE FUN RUN participants.   Speaking of the KIDDIE FUN RUN, this year’s FUN RUN will begin at 9:00 a.m. so that parents can participate in both the 5k and the Fun Run!
We hope that you will be a part of this year’s event!  Please register at http://www.getmeregistered.com/Wishbone5k today!
