The Greater Whitewater Committee (GWC) will feature their 2nd annual Discover Whitewater Series through beautiful Whitewater on Sep. 21, 2014. Taking place in conjunction with the Discover Whitewater Series Half-Marathon, Half-Marathon Relay and 5K, is Working for Whitewater’s Wellness (W3) Fit Kid Shuffle
Along with providing opportunities to young runners, the Discover Whitewater Series is an exciting series of events that caters to runners of all ages. To ensure that all members of the family have an opportunity to participate in this year’s series, the Discover Whitewater Series will be offering a Kids Corral. The Kids Corral is a combined effort of DWS and UW-Whitewater’s College of Education and Professional Studies. UWW students and volunteers in education will be available to watch kids in a safe environment (12 & under) while parents participate in the Half Marathon or 5K. This is a free service to any adult who is registered for the Discover Whitewater Series. Volunteers of the Kids Corral will have gone through a background check and will be managed by Dr. Robin K. Fox, Chair, UW-Whitewater’s College of Education and Professional Studies. For more information, please visit the DWS website.
Online registration for all events closes Sept. 17th. Onsite registration is available both Sept. 20th and 21st. Proceeds from the series will go to five local organizations to assist them in building a stronger Whitewater. Those organizations are Whitewater Unified School District, Bethel House, UWW Athletics, W3 (wellness organization) and the Whitewater Aquatic Center.
Spectators are welcome and encouraged along the route, and all post race events are open to the public. On race day, the The Whitewater Kiwanis Club will be hosting a pancake breakfast in the Whitewater High School (WHS) from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Other post-race events will be located adjacent to WHS on Elizabeth St., and include family friendly activities such as a rock climbing wall, obstacle course, live music with Titan Fun Key, food, Octoberfest Beer from Randy’s Fun Hunters Brewery, wine from Staller Estate Winery and much more.
