Wesley Village Halloween 5K and Fun Walk – A Race for All Generations


The 5K Run featured a new flatter out and back course sponsored by C.E. Floyd Company, along with a 1-Mile Fun Walk sponsored by M&T Bank and a Kids Run, sponsored by Merit Insurance. The community event was coordinated with the help of JB Sports Event Management and was the 4th largest of 14 running events in the state that weekend.

Race festivities were hosted across the beautifully landscaped Wesley Village Campus and included a costume contest, trick-or-treating, face painting, a bounce house, pumpkin painting, music, food, and an awards ceremony. Proceeds from the race benefitted award-winning resident programs at Wesley Village and the Long Hill Elementary School PTA.

Wesley Village would like to thank the Long Hill Elementary School PTA and the many local sponsors and participants who helped to make this year’s race a huge success!
