ABOUT THE EVENT
InclusiF Fitness, a Corporate Wellness company, is proud to announce the Whine Walk Run 5K - an Official Caribbean 5K. The Caribbean is considered one of the most vibrant places in the world, so our goal is to infuse the sights and sounds of the islands with an regular 5K. Our objective is to promote healthy living for the entire family and to promote the Caribbean culture of a colorful atmosphere, liveliness, festive costumes, fun, food and lots of dance.
Community is a vital part of the Caribbean culture. While islanders continue to migrate to the United States, we recognize the importance of ensuring our children know and continue to share our traditions with future generations. Through this inaugural 5K, we hope to jumpstart or continue to inspire islanders to better health.
Although this event may be promoted as a “Caribbean 5K”, the event is open to everyone. A common slogan, in the Caribbean, is One Love. Help show our unity by inviting family and friends to join us in championing the importance of good health.
🔥Get In The Mood!!🔥
TRAIN FOR YOUR RACE

Training dates, times and locations will be listed at a later date.
RUN FOR CHARITY
Whine Walk Run 5K is a proud supporter of the Caribbean Association of Georgia, Inc.
