Spectators

WFPS Run is monitoring public health regulations around in-person events and number of allowed participants on site.  It is still strongly recommended that spectators chose a spot on the course to view the event and to reduce crowing at the event site. Updates on allowed numbers and special spaces for spectators will be made closer to the event date.

As in previous years, awards will be presented for the top runners in their age categories.  The WFPS Run committee will determine if these awards will be presented on-site or post event in a Facebook Live event.

WFPS Run is happy to offer runners a selection of post run treats in our Food Tent.  In 2022, these selections may be served to you “cafeteria style” by volunteers or may be pre-bagged.  Runners are welcome to stay and relax in our Food Tent or take their goodies to go.

There are no race day kit pick-ups – no exceptions.

You must pick up your kit in person due to potential public health requirements and proof of vaccination requirements.

Kit pick up dates and times are as follows

Friday, October 14th 9am – 7pm
