The 3rd Annual WES Bee 5K

By Connor Walsh

On November 11th, 2018, the 3rd annual WES Bee 5K took place at Wayne Elementary. The sun was out and the sky was clear, it was chilly but it wasn’t raining! At 8:45 AM the starting siren went off for the 1 mile fun run. 1 mile runners and walkers covered a course out on West Wayne and returning to WES. As runners came in from the 1 mile fun run, Mr. Tracy was calling out the names of many of the student finishers.

After all fun runner/walkers crossed the finish line, Mr. Tracy call up all 5K runners to the starting line. The race timer from Bryn Mawr Racing, who was my Dad Ryan Walsh, gave directions on where the course would go. After the directions and the National Anthem, the starting siren went off for the 5K. The course was 2 laps which would total 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles. There were many volunteers on the course who worked as race marshals. Mrs. Ferguson was at one of the key turns, cheering every single runner! After you crossed the Mill Dam bridge and one short little hill it was a straight away to the finish line. As you were going over the finish line many people were cheering you on.

After you finished the race you could look at your time and go get snack. Mr. Tracy announced the award winners at 10:00. They started with overall winners and then oldest people to the youngest people. The 1st Wayne Elementary school student was Curtis Conner who is in 5th grade. All of the award winners and a link to overall results can be found below. This race benefits WES and raised over $2,500.
