Memories from our first decade of Wonderful Runs… See you again in 2021!

While the 2020 It’s A Wonderful Life Festival and It’s A Wonderful Run 5K could not be held in person due to the pandemic, we hope these memories of the past decade of events will raise your spirits in anticipation of being together again in Seneca Falls during Christmas season 2021. This special 90 minute video highlights some of the best memories of the first decade of Wonderful Runs. Merry Christmas!



Register for the 2020 IAWR Virtual Run

“Life doesn’t have to be perfect, to be wonderful”-Annette Funicello

We have made the tough decision to go to a VIRTUAL FORMAT for the 2020 It’s A Wonderful Run 5K. There is nothing more we would love than to have our event in person and pretend like nothing has happened, but 2020 has other ideas for us.

When we started this event 12 years ago, we had three goals:

· Create an event that allowed people to spend time with friend and family and get them into the holiday spirit

· Create an event that would bring people to our lovely town to help our local economy

· And, most importantly, raise money for those in need

While we can’t host you here in our lovely town, you can still spend time with your family and friends, still get in the holiday spirit, and still raise money for local charities….in fact, charities need your support more than ever! Please register for this year’s event and help us continue to help those in need. Each registration will include our world famous race shirt that will be mailed to your home.

In addition, during registration you can choose to donate to our scholarship fund and/or any of the over 60 charities and organizations we helped last year. Please consider donating to one of our wonderful organizations what you may have spent on gas, lodging, or reindeer ears and angel wings.

We know there may be many questions. PLEASE BE PATIENT as we are new to this ourselves. We will certainly continue to post and update throughout the upcoming weeks. Thank you SO MUCH for all the love and support you’ve given us over the years. We know this isn’t ideal, however we are still compelled to focus on the good and continue to help those in need. We hope we can count on you this year as well!
