Sparky's Kids Mile
The Sparky's Kids Mile is tailored to kids who want to run and be a part of the Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon. We encourage Wichita's youth to make healthy choices and to live an active lifestyle. Kids can come out and run, jog, walk or skip to the finish line and earn a commemorative medal that they can show off to their family and friends. The Sparky's Kids Mile will begin at 9:30 am and will start in front of the Wichita Boathouse and finish at the Finish Line of the Half Marathon.
The Fun Run/Walk will be held on the same course as the Sparky's Kids Mile at 9:45 am. We encourage the city of Wichita to come out and run, jog, skip, or walk together with family and friends and enjoy the weather and good times that the Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon offers. Each participant will receive a runners bag at the Expo. We have Family Rates, register at www.prairiefiremarathon.com to take advantage of the discounted prices!
