Consider joining WCRC for a Saturday morning group run! We meet outside the door of the YMCA on Chestnut Street every Saturday at 7:30AM. We say hello and then run in the Borough at our own paces.
Yori’s Bakery Run (2022)
A hearty group of runners came out on a rainy Saturday morning in December for the Club’s annual Bakery Run. After a 3-5 mile run around the Borough we enjoyed delicious donuts, hot coffee and good company at Yori’s Bakery.

Yori’s Bakery Run (2021)
What a great time the 2021 Bakery Run proved to be. Granted donuts and coffee were involved, but without the efforts that we put into keeping the Club viable, each of us has a little less in our lives. Thanks for the commitment and persistence that each of you has shown over the last several years. We’ve aided the local community, sustained friendships, and brought together people who otherwise would not have known one another. If that isn’t fulfilling a mission statement, I don’t know what more we could do. Peace and good health to all of you. ~Dave Keefe, WCRC President
