West Ashley High School DECA Hosting Inaugural 5K Run/Walk

West Ashley High School DECA is hosting the 1st Annual WA 5K:WAHS Logo
A Dash Thru the Den on May 23rd at 8:30am on West Ashley High’s campus.

Who:  This is a fun event for anyone and everyone who enjoys running or walking and would like a tour of the West Ashley High campus.


What: The WA 5K: A Dash Thru the Den is a run / walk hosted by West Ashley High School DECA.  The entire event was conceived by students, is being planned by students, and will be directed by students.  The event was created to serve two purposes: 1) To create an annual community-wide event on our campus where people could come together and have a great time with their friends, and 2) To help raise funds to pay for members of DECA to attend the annual International Career Development Conference.  This year 15 West Ashley High students are going to the conference in Orlando!  They hope to be able to take even more students to the conference next year in Nashville.


The race will begin at 8:30am on the track in Wildcat Stadium before taking participants on a “tour” of the West Ashley High campus (or The Den as it’s known by the students).  There will be awards for the Top 3 Male and Female runners / walkers and we will have special awards / giveaways for categories like Best Costume, Most Wildcat Spirit, etc.

  • WAHS Faculty and Students – $20
    • To sign up, please pick up a race packet from a DECA member in the Cafeteria during 3rd period beginning April 14th. Faculty and Students should return their race packet to a DECA member in the Cafeteria along with their registration fee before May 19th.
