On October 4, 2014, the Wasaga Beach community participated in the annual Wasaga Beach YMCA Run Just for Fun. With an option to run or walk two, five or ten kilometres, fun was had by all despite the chilly weather.
The day started off with registration inside, before everyone ventured out into the cold to do some fun warm-ups, led by MyY Wasaga’s fitness supervisor. After everyone loosened up and felt ready to go, people began to line up underneath the start flag. Finally, they were off to the races!
The trail took runners through a forested canopy of beautiful fall colors before leading them to the beach, which also provided a picturesque scene. With various checkpoints manned by volunteers, runners were given water and brief rest before heading off again towards the finish line. Runners were met by celebrations of loud cheers, warm drinks and burgers after crossing the finish flag.
Thank You From the Wasaga Beach YMCA
The Wasaga Beach YMCA would like to express our thanks to all the dedicated runners who participated this year and to all the volunteers who gave their time to help register, set up, tear down, and cheer!
Finally, we would like to thank our organizers, the Senior Staff team from the Wasaga Beach YMCA.
Great job everyone; we’re looking forward to another great Run Just for Fun next year!
