Timberline Elementary hosts Running of the Wolves Fun Run



It’s not every Saturday that you see a pack of wolves running around Timberline Elementary. But that was definitely the case on Oct. 3.

A pack of more than 250 people took part in the second annual Running of the Wolves Fun Run at Timberline, which of course, is the home of the wolves. Students and parents joined staff and community members to walk, jog or run the 5K course through the Timberline and Parkview neighborhoods.

“Our goal is to bring families together in a healthy active way,” said Kate Maestas, who launched the Fun Run two years ago.

Timberline Principal Todd Wynne says Maestas deserves a lot of credit for the growth and success of the event.

“The Running of the Wolves Family Fun Run is an example of a parent who had the vision and determination to bring a healthy, affordable, neighborhood event to our school and its surrounding community,” Wynne said. “Kate Maestas originally hoped to bring in 30 to 40 families. The ember she created caught fire and we have had over 250 participants each year. Seeing Timberline, Thunder Ridge and Eaglecrest join surrounding neighborhood communities as well as the local fire and police departments is an awesome sight!”

The event was also sponsored by the Women’s Parkview Running Club and supported by the Parkview and Parkview Highlands homeowners associations.
