More than 100 participate in inaugural 5K race

Watching carvers and listening to music weren’t the only activities offered over the weekend at Loudy-Simpson Park. The Friends of Moffat County Education, a community group designed to assist local educational efforts, organized and hosted the inaugural Wake the Whittler 5K run, walk and one-mile fun run. The race took place Saturday morning and had about 100 participants, said Chris Jones, an FMCE Board member and one of the adults involved with organizing the 5K. “We hit the number we were looking for people-wise,” Jones said. “It’s a great weekend in the City of Craig with Whittle the Wood going on, and we’re excited to try and make this an annual event.”
