The Greater Whitewater Committee (GWC) is an organization made up of businesses, with goals to educate, advocate, and develop ideas that make Whitewater a destination of choice to visit and live. It is for this reason that the GWC decided to introduce the Discover Whitewater Series.
The Greater Whitewater Committee’s Inaugural Discover Whitewater Series Half Marathon and Half Marathon Relay was held September 22nd, 2013. Race day, the GWC and Discover Whitewater Series Planning Committee were joined by 563 participants and 400+ volunteers for a successful event. A total of $25,000 was split between five local charities and organizations.
The success of the Inaugural Discover Whitewater Series in 2013 was due to the development and support of a strong community coalition spearheaded by the Greater Whitewater Committee, Inc. Over 35 representatives from Whitewater businesses and community organizations gather together regularly to help plan this event and to ensure that a high quality, safe and challenging course is established for participants.
