In 2010, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission took ownership of the Prairie Fire Marathon (previously known as the Wichita Marathon). For the first time, not only was a full marathon race offered, but also a half marathon, 5K, youth marathon, and one-mile walk.

In 2013, we expanded into the Spring running season offering our Half Marathon, 5K, Sparky’s Kids Mile, and a Fun Run/Walk. Both the Spring and Fall events make up the Prairie Fire Race Series.

Since the inaugural Prairie Fire race in 2010, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission has contributed over $155,000 to other local charities and organizations.
