Homecoming 5K to Support Track & Field, Vets

This year’s Homecoming and Parent Weekend will hit the ground running with an important fundraising event. The VWC Cross Country/Track & Field teams have once again partnered with the American Legion Post 35 for a 5K Trail Run/Walk that will be held on Saturday, October 5 at 8:30 a.m. The event will take place on the trails of the Virginia Wesleyan campus and is open to Hampton Roads runners and walkers of all abilities. A special 1K (.62 miles) “Walk With a Vet” will be held prior to the race at 8 a.m., in which participants will have the opportunity to walk with older and/or wounded veterans. Half of the proceeds will go to VWC’s Cross Country/Track & Field teams and the other half will support the community work that Post 35 does with military veterans and their families. Traditional age group awards will be held in addition to awards for the top three male and female VWC alumni and top three male and female VWC staff members.
