    This will be our fifth annual marathon/relay marathon from Wichita Brewing Company West to Wichita Brewing Company East. The course is USATF certified for the serious runners.  But, will be set up with five interchanges for teams of six runners to run the marathon.  The course will stick to the Wichita bike paths as much as possible for the safety of all the runners.

    Registration is different than in past years. If you are signing up for the team marathon you will sign up yourself individually, under your team name, or if you are the first person registering in your team you will create a team name. Each runner running in the team marathon will pay $40 upon registering. 

    On the morning of March 8th, the race will be kick off at 8 am at Wichita Brewing Company West.  The first leg will run to Central and Mt. Caramel.  The second leg will run to McLean and St. Paul.  The third leg will run to Exploration place the south bridge of the Keeper of the Plains.  The fourth leg will run to Pawnee and St. Francis.  The fifth leg will run to George Washington and Oliver.  The last leg will bring it home to Wichita Brewing Company East, and our new event venue.  We will have water at each interchange and in between the interchanges as well.  We will stop timing after 6 hours.

We will have a post run party located after the finish line just outside Wichita Brewing Company East, and our event venue.  Also at the post run festivities we will announce winners in their respective categories.  The categories are as posted: Top 3 Individual Men, Top 3 Individual Women, Top relay team of only men, top relay team of only women, top 3 relay of mixed teams of men and women(need one woman), then for the adventurous, best costume/team costumes and best team name. There potentially will be more categories to win in. We are going to cap off the entries at 150 teams and unlimited individuals. 

    We are donating money what we raise to Kansas Food Bank as we have in previous years. For the 2016 race, $5,200 was donated to the Kansas Food Bank and $10,000 in 2017. In 2018 we raised an astounding $17,000. In 2019 we raised nearly $13,000.

    The Kansas Food Bank's mission is to provide comprehensive and compassionate HungerCare whenever and wherever it is needed to safeguard the health, well-being and productivity of food-insecure Kansas families and their children, as well as senior citizens, the homeless and the chronically ill and impoverished among us.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.
