Spring Race

UPDATE: APRIL 14, 2021

Race Day is right around the corner on May 2nd! Registrations are going well for the in-person Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon & 5K with almost 1,000 signed up to participate! Just a reminder that packet pick-up is Saturday, May 1st from 9am -5pm at the Wichita Boathouse (please wear a mask).

We’re excited to be partnered with some great organizations this spring including Girls on the Run and Ainsley’s Angels.

While it appears that our community is doing well with controlling COVID-19, we are still moving forward cautiously with the limited amenities on race day. Even though we continue to monitor the situation, the excitement is still strong for this great event.

If you or a someone you know would like to be a part of the race experience, but not as a runner, we encourage him/her to sign up as a volunteer. Signing up is easy to do and your time given is greatly appreciated.  VOLUNTEER SIGN UP
