The WA 5K: A Dash Thru the Den is a run / walk hosted by the West Ashley High School DECA. 

The entire event was conceived by students, is being planned by students, and will be directed by students. The event was created to serve two purposes:  1) To create an annual community-wide event on our campus where people could come together and have a great time with their friends, and 2) To help raise funds to pay for members of DECA to attend the annual International Career Development Conference. 

This year 15 West Ashley High students are going to the conference in Orlando! They hope to be able to take even more students to the conference next year in Nashville.

The race will begin at 8:30am on the track in Wildcat Stadium before taking participants on a “tour” of the West Ashley High campus (or “The Den” as it’s known by the students). There will be awards for the Top 3 Male and Female runners / walkers and we will have special awards / giveaways for categories like Best Costume, Most Wildcat Spirit, etc.

Prices are as follows:

– WAHS Faculty and Students – $20
– Community Members – $25
– Walk Ups – $30
– Runners / walkers can register on race day between 7am – 8am.

*All race packets include a race bib and an official WA 5K t-shirt.*
