Bun Run!

The Wesley UMC 3rd annual Bun Run is being held in conjunction with the 28th annual Fried Onion Burger Day Festival. This will be the 19th year for the Bun Run and the third year that Wesley UMC has organized this event.

By participating you will help support Wesley UMC’s foreign mission teams. Our teams work with and support the Hands Together ministry that builds schools, medical clinics, homes, and community centers for the impoverished people of Northern Mexico.

The USATF sanctioned and certified course for the 5K run and the 1 mile fun run/walk will start at Memorial Stadium, 2001 Sunset Drive, and wind through the Lake El Reno and Crimson Creek Golf Course area.
