WHEELING W.Va. — (WTRF) Ready, set, go!

Starting Saturday morning bright and early the 44th annual Ogden Newspapers Wellness Weekend will get underway.

At 7:30 AM, the half marathon walk and 5K walk will take place and then runners take their marks before the start of the half marathon classic run which begins at 7:50 AM with the 5K run at 8 AM.

Also, the Ogden Fun Run starts at 9:30 AM and the Tiny Tot Trot begins at 10:30 AM.

WTRF is the media sponsor for the entire event and our very own Scott Nolte will be the official starter while Chief Meterologist Zach Petey will be the official meteorologist and will present awards to Saturday’s winners.

It’s not just coming down for the race. We’re trying to make it a full, fun weekend that actually people can come down and enjoy themselves and have some fun and have some food, fellowship and whatever it might be.
