Thank you for inquiring about the Wounded Warrior 10K and Little Warrior 2K. This is a certified 10K course running through the heart of Parkersburg, WV from beautiful Point Park, around the Parkersburg City Park and back again. 2012 served as the inaugural race and was an inistant success with over 300 runners.
In 2013, we are pleased and excited to say that we have added the Little Warrior 2K for kids 10 and under so they may participate. Each runner will receive a race day shirt while also offering the opportunity to receive our one of a kind medals for first and second place finishes in their respective categories.
The Parkersburg South High School Crew Team and Parkersburg High School Crew Team are proud to host this illustrious event. As a host, they are using this event as a fundraiser to improve their boathouse facilities however, 50% of all proceeds are donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Last year, I am pleased to announce that we were able to donate over $4400.00 to the Wounded Warrior Project and expect that number to grow this year.
With the Parkersburg News and Sentinel Half Marathon on the horizon, this is a great warmup to check your progress while also supporting a great cause.
Please stay tuned for further information regarding Help To Heal 2013 which will take place later this summer. This will be a FREE community day outing with live entertainment, exhibitions and more.
