WELLSBURG - The Wendy's 5K Run-Walk drew many participants, including many visitors from foreign countries.
Cecil Toner, the event's coordinator, said this year's event, held on July 4 as part of the city's weeklong celebration of Independence Day, drew 161 runners and walkers, the most in recent years.
He added there were many from foreign countries, including participants in Bethany College's Camp hailing from England, France, Jamaica, Hungary and other countries.
Toner said it's not unusual for the event to draw visitors. A couple from Seattle visiting family took park this year, while Scottish relatives of Bob Haas of Wellsburg have taken part in the past.
