|Wayne County Challenge|
You may be asking yourself “What is the Wayne County Challenge?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. So here is a quick guide to the Wayne County Challenge and what it can do for you.
The Wayne County Challenge is a series of seven 5K’s and one 7K all around Wayne County that start in May and run through December. It’s a great opportunity to get out, get some exercise, meet new people, and support some great local causes. You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy the Wayne County Challenge, there are lots of people that enjoy just walking the courses at their own pace.
Also, keep in mind, you don’t have to do EVERY race. You can choose to be a part of any of the Wayne County Challenge races. However, if you do commit to several, you receive points for every race and you just may end up winning an award for your age division at the end of the season. If you really feel committed, you can buckle down and complete all 8 races. This is called “Elite 8″. Not many people make it to Elite 8 status, but you can do it. It’s not reserved for just runners, even a steady walker can receive this prestigious award.
