Youth Marathon – 11:00a start
All students participating in the youth marathon program will complete a Mileage Tracker that will be kept by their teacher at their respective school. The Mileage Tracker will keep track of each mile the student runs prior to the event on October 11, 2020. Each student will log either 12.1 miles or 25.1 miles on his or her Mileage Tracker sheet by having a teacher sign off for each mile completed. On the day of the event, each student will run the final one mile on a closed and safe course that will take them through the streets of Wichita. “Friends of Prairie Fire” will run with the kids to help ensure safety at all times. The race is a wonderful sight to see and all of the kids love to be able to tell people they ran a marathon while showing off their finisher’s medal.

Make plans now to join us for this mile-long family-friendly run or stroll along the Douglass Design District sponsored by Via Christi Health. Participants will line up to start in front of The Wave and end at the finish line of the Prairie Fire Half Marathon.
