Wheeling Park District Presents Heritage Classic 5K/10K Run and 1-Mile Walk

Benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and ME Campaign 

The Wheeling Park District presents its annual Heritage Classic 5K/10K Run and 1-Mile Walk on Sunday, October 3 at 10:00 AM benefitting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Wheeling Park District ME Campaign.  

The Heritage Classic course was redesigned this year so spectators can view the start and finish and cheer on the runners and walkers.  The 5K run will take participants through Heritage Park and neighborhood streets, which will be closed to vehicular traffic (the 10K course will make the same loop twice), while the 1-mile walk traverses through Heritage Park and the scenic Wheeling Community Center campus.

Complimentary fruit, bagels, water and Gatorade will be made available to participants of the Heritage Classic, and all runners and walkers will also receive a T-shirt and goody bag containing coupons and gift certificates for GO ROMA and other community businesses and services.

Participants can reconnect with family and friends at the Wheeling Community Recreation Center, where the Pink Pancake Breakfast, hosted by the Wheeling Jaycees, will be set up.  The spread will be offered from 10:30 AM until noon, offering runners and walkers all-you-can-eat complimentary pink pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice (the cost is $5 for non-participants).
