Students at Westminster High School are gearing up for the Run with the Wolves 5K. The event will be Saturday, Sept. 22, and is open to students of all ages and community members.
The race is sponsored by the Parents Activities and Athletics Council, with grant funding coming from Healthy Schools Colorado. Last year, the inaugural race drew more than 100 participants, but this year the council and organizers are hoping for a much bigger turnout.
“Last year went very well, and we were pleased the race brought in a wide group of people from students and community members,” said Margaret Sobol, teacher at Westminster High School and race organizer. “We have made some changes this year to enhance the race, so we are hoping to really increase the participation numbers.”
Those changes include altering the course to allow for a bigger crowd; assistance from Timing Consortium, which will have a representative at the race to help time and track each participant; and logistical support from the Westminster Police Department to help with traffic control.
Sobol said the race is considered an urban-trail course and begins at 8:30 a.m. at Raleigh Street. Participants will head north to Little Dry Creek, then east to Federal Boulevard. At that point, participants will turn around and head back to finish in the stadium at Westminster High School, welcomed by the high school band and cheerleaders. Awards for overall top finishers and top racers in each age group will be given during an award ceremony in the stadium after the race.
“The race will provide an opportunity for the students, staff and the District 50 community to rally around our hometown high school and participate in a fun, community-focused event,” said Parents Activities and Athletics Council co-president Ruben Sanchez.
Preregistration is $5 for students and children under 12, and $15 for adults. Race-day registration is $10 for students and children under 12, and $20 for adults. Registration forms can be found on the District 50 website at www.adams50.org. Completed forms, with the registration fee, should be dropped off at the Athletic Office at Westminster High School, 6933 Raleigh St. For more information or with questions, call 720-542-5414.
