Rhubarb Event Added To Festival
Get involved in the Wakefield-Rhubarb-Run, a race promoted by the Wakefield Council.
According to a recent press release, there will be a new event added to the Rhubarb Festival, and this is it.
It is hoped by the Wakefield-Council that this event will promote a healthier way of eating and that exercise is very important to all as well.
February is the month scheduled for the main Rhubarb Festival
and the rhubarb run was to be held at Pugney's Park for the first time as of 2009.
The run consisted of children from primary schools in the
district, aged 10 and 11 years old. There were teams of 6, and each person had to carry a stick of rhubarb with them.
A 1.6 mile course goes around the area of the Park. The goal for the winning team is to get 4 members of one team across the finish line first and of course they will have to have their stick of rhubarb.
The intent of this event is not only to promote healthy eating and exercise, but to expand on the already highly successful Festival that runs every year.
The Council is hoping for support from community members by their attendance at this newly added event and hopefully it will remain a part of the annual Festival activities from now on.
