Our flat course on Forbes Field (Topeka Airport) is one of the fastest courses around and the end of September makes for fine weather to join us to test and improve your 5K or 10K times.The Run will be chip timed. The 4K Walk will not be timed.
10K participants will run the course twice.
Medals will be earned by the top two runners in each 5-year classification. Trophies will be awarded to the first place female and male runners in the 5K and 10K Run and in the 4K Walk.
Our course has just been recertified (5K: KS19004 TJD and 10K: KS19003 TJD) by the USATF. Water stations will be available on the course.
Race packets will be available for pick-up at the Combat Air Museum Friday, September 27th from 9 am to 3 pm. Chips will be available for pick-up on the day of the Run.
