Wellen Park St. Patrick’s Day 5K Recap

Yet another Countdown to Downtown event has rolled through Wellen Park for both residents and non-residents alike! We had a blast celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with our community, and we were happy to see that the 400+ St. Patrick’s Day 5K participants and their supporters all had a shamrockin’ good time. 

Scroll through for a photo gallery recap of this past weekend’s festivities!

A delicious spread of breakfast goodies.

It wasn’t just luck that made Wellen Park’s first-ever St. Patrick’s Day 5K such a success, but a combination of hard work from our team as well as help from our sponsors Capstan Financial, Peachwave West Villages, Bocca Lupo, and Dunkin’. Thank you to all who came out and celebrated St Patrick’s Day the Wellen Way!
