Latin Club Hosts Toga Run 5K


The Woodgrove High School Latin Club sponsored its first ever Toga Run 5k on March 14. Proceeds for the event went directly to the Latin Club to support any future endeavors, like attending the Latin Convention in Richmond and money for t-shirts.

Participants of all ages who signed up for the Toga Run had to choose between either walking or running two and a half laps around Woodgrove’s Cross-Country course. Those who ran/walked had to finish the Toga Run in overcast weather, with puddles and marshy soil plaguing the course.

The three finalists who braved the swampy course received an honorary gladiator bobble head from Woodgrove’s own Mr. Dyke, with their category of final placement inscribed beneath the gladiator’s feet.

Brianna Spears-Heinel received the overall winner and Best Toga gladiator, Matthew Renner received the Top Male gladiator, and Cary Brown received the Top Female gladiator prize.toga run 5k2
