A message from Kathy Hanson:

My heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers, runners and spectators who made the WDF and RATW 5K race on July 14, 2018 a success.  Each of you played a very specific part in making it all work.  The weather was perfect.  And now that we are having a bit of a rainy season, I bet you are glad for the umbrellas.  To those runners who signed up on race day and did not receive one, please contact me at Kathy Hanson as there are a few left over .  I can make them available at the Dog Days on Sunday.
