When:Anytime you choose between August 22-September 8
Where:Anywhere you'd like to run or walk
Why:Because we need to get up and move in support of WP Athletics We hope you and your families are safe and healthy during these challenging times. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on every aspect of our daily lives and missing out on high school athletics has added to our disappointment and frustration. All of our sports programs and athletes have been impacted, and the future is still unclear.
However, like any great team we are not giving up when we are down and are trying something new this summer! Together, the West Potomac Athletic Department and the Wolverine Athletic Booster Club have partnered to create the Wolverine Nation Virtual 5K.
This virtual race will open on August 22nd and run through September 7. Runners/walkers may complete a course of their choosing anytime during the race window. We are excited to see our West Potomac community come together to celebrate its love of athletics and athletes.
Registration fees for the virtual 5K is $30 or $100 for a family of four (4) **the discount for the family of four will be taken at the end of registration once four people are registered.
Each participant will receive a custom bib and West Potomac Wolverine magnet.
We want to thank and acknowledge the WABC Athletic Boosters for their support on The Wolverine Green project since May of 2016!
