Wayne County has an active and welcoming running community. The Wayne County Challenge promotes community health through amateur distance running.

Wayne County Challenge organizes an annual series of distance running races held within Wayne County, Indiana, in which points are earned for participation and competitive achievement. The unique scoring system of the WCC series and the awards presented at the end of each season are designed to encourage and reward the participation of all types and ages of runners. The "challenge" of the Wayne County Challenge can range from completing a 5K race for the first time - . . . to winning every race of the series.

Visit their website for upcoming race schedules and results or follow them on Facebook. Races are also publicized on WayNet's Community Calendar.
