Event Details:

Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome. No pets please. This race is held each year in conjunction with the Amelia Earhart Festival! There are many activities for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day and evening.

The 2K run/walk is fairly flat with one large hill going up and down. The 8K run is rather hilly and is considered a more challenging course. The 8K will have water stations throughout the run. There will be emergency personnel before, during, and after both runs. They will be in marked vehicles. Both runs begin and end at the YMCA, and the start time is promptly at 7:30 am. Parking is not permitted on the 300 block of Commercial Street during race time. Packet pick up will be at the Atchison Family YMCA on Friday, July 18 from 5:00 am-3:00 pm.

The Atchison YMCA Gymnastics Team will host a Pancake Breakfast at the YMCA from 6:30-10:30 am. the morning of the run. All you can eat pancakes! Free will donations will be accepted! All proceeds go to help with the cost of uniforms, warm-ups, and meet fees! Thanks for your support!
