Founded in 2010 – The Prairie Fire Wichita Marathon is committed to promoting health, wellness and fellowship amongst runners, joggers and walkers from all walks of life. They believe in the positive impact a marathon can have on its community. The Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission and Via Christi Health have partnered to host four consecutive Prairie Fire Marathon events. They have one of the flattest and fastest courses with truly unrivaled beauty and community involvement, throughout the heart of Wichita’s growing urban and residential areas.
This year’s races benefited the Children’s Miracle Network as well as other charities. They also loan and share many of their assets and equipment for other charitable races, such as Girls on the Run, Newman University Gladiator Run, River Run etc.
