The Widefield Running & Walking Club, led by Erik Nelson, Cross Country Coach for Widefield High School, is looking for participation from the local community. The newly formed club has a diverse group of runners and walkers. The club meets every Thursday night at 6:00 pm at the Widefield Community Center, 715 Aspen Drive. Club members run or walk, at their own pace along a 5K course that loops back to the start at the community center.
“I want people in this community, Widefield, Security, Fountain and surrounding areas to see people out running and walking and having fun doing it. Especially the kids in the area and I’m hopeful that seeing their community invested in running or walking will encourage kids to do the same,” said Erik Nelson.
Whether you are a competitive runner, just getting into the sport or someone who enjoys a good walk, the Widefield Running & Walking Club can help you achieve your goals. There are no fees and kids are welcome. You can run or walk with your dogs as well.
The Widefield Running & Walking Club is a community club formed to encourage its local neighbors to get out and run for fun. Please contact Erik Nelson at 719-659-9931 or Don Byers at 719-231-0169 for more information.
