IMPORTANT: Volunteers and Participants Needed!!

WRC has agreed to co-sponsor the “Friends of the W&OD 10K” race to be held Saturday evening (6:30), July 30, in Vienna Va.

The race itself will take place on the W&OD trail. Web site is As co-sponsors, WRC members receive a $10 discount on registration ($20 vs. $30). Also, for every two volunteers, WRC receives one free entry. WRC will also be featured on the race T-shirt.

This race supports not only the W&OD, which all of us use and value highly, but 14 other excellent charities (see website).

WRC has agreed to provide a variety of volunteers, with volunteer shifts typically lasting four hours. Please take advantage of this opportunity to support our club and support this worthy cause. Volunteers will receive both a free race T-shirt as well as a WRC T-shirt to proudly wear (the latter) while volunteering at the event. Great visibility for our club!

If you do not volunteer, please register to run this race. We would like to maximize our club’s presence at this event!
