This Saturday (October 24) the regular Saturday morning run will be moved to Battleground at the Tippecanoe Battlefield. Come at the regular time (8 AM) and get a trail run in before the 15K Trail Race. Or come at 9 AM and run in the race. Or get crazy and do both 😉
There will be a cookout to celebrate the day and the final race of the Trail Run Series. The Saturday run will be back to the regular location (Panera in the Landing) on October 31st.
The registration form for the 2015 Run in the New Year (RITNY) has been posted. The run will begin at 10 AM at the Four Points by Sheraton in West Lafayette. The mileage varies depending on the weather and how much you just want to get to breakfast This is an excellent opportunity to get to know fellow club members and renew your WRRC membership for the year. A run with friends is an excellent start to the New Year!
Congratulations to all the runners that participated in this years Farmers Market 5K race series. The run last night was the last of the season. The series culminated with first and second place winners for each age category. A runner had to participate in at least three FM5K races during the season to be eligible. The finishing times for each race were used to decide the winner for each category. The winners are listed below and the race times are in this link.

The Farmer’s Market 5K on October 15th will have an added twist. WRRC will provide a Family night where you can bring the kids!! We are having a Kids run at 6:00PM before the Adult FM5K. This will be two separate groups of kids, one for the 3-7 age group and one for the 8-12 age group.
- The 3-7 age group will run 0.15 miles, this is from the wooden bridge behind where the adults start to the shelter where we normally register(on the paved path).
- The 8-12 age group will start approximately where the regular FM starts, run around the woods, around the shelter on the corner and out to the end of the trail heading toward Kalberer. This is approximately 1 mile.
