FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions)


1. What’s with the name?

The Mad Anthony Run Thru the Park” takes its name from Waynesboro’s namesake, American Revolutionary War General “Mad Anthony” Wayne.

Does that mean the race has a ‘colonial era theme’?  No!  No three-corner hats, powdered wigs or shoes with big brass buckles.

Don’t think of Gen. Wayne’s era, instead think of his moniker, ‘mad‘, and think ‘crazy, insane, bananas, kooky, loony’.

OK, be truthful, what does your significant other, family, friends etc. think of your “running interest, hobby, addiction”?

Get the picture?

The Mad Anthony Run Thru the Park” celebrates our ‘whimsical, slightly off-balance, affection’ for the great sport of RUNNING and the lovely parks in Waynesboro.
