Spring Race

September 22, 2021 –

It has been brought to our attention this morning that the company we use to send out our community notifications re-printed the one for the May race instead of one with the information for the race on October 10, 2021. A new postcard is being produced and will be mailed on 9/23/21 to those living along the course.


Tuesday, May 4, 2021 –

What a great day it was on Sunday! We had 1,270 registered for the Prairie Fire Spring Races! We appreciate all the runners and spectators who came out to make it a wonderful day and experience.

We also are extremely grateful for the many volunteers who gave of their time and talents to assist in helping with the event. Additionally, the dozens of sponsors who gave financial support to the operation and execution of the race cannot be understated – without them much of what we do would be difficult.

While some aspects of the race were different from past years, we believe that these changes were necessary to assist in navigating the current ever-changing challenges of COVID. Some of those changes that were made have allowed us to realize that some might allow us to be more strategic in our operations of the event moving forward.

For those participants who did not receive your shirts/medals on Saturday – rest assured that you will receive your items for participating in the race. We have already begun the process of placing the orders in hopes to have delivery of these items to you soon. Please continue to check the website for updates.

Race day photos are now available for viewing and download. Thank you Captivating Photos for capturing the fun! We also thank Visit Wichita for their sponsorship of the amenity.

If you’re looking for the results, go back to the top of the page and you should see a yellow button titled “Results”.

Now that you’ve completed your spring race, don’t slow down – keep training and staying physically fit. Sign up now for a Prairie Fire Fall race and stay motivated.

We look forward to seeing you in the fall (October 10th) or next year!
