Run for Your Momma at the county lake

Staff writer

Runners from throughout central Kansas will flock to Marion County Park and Lake on Saturday for the ninth annual Mothers of Preschoolers Run for Your Momma.

The half-marathon, half marathon relay, and 5k run/walk follow a course of pavement and gravel roads through hills and flat lands, passing through Marion, by Marion County Lake, and with prairie, tilled fields, and grazing cattle in between.

The half-marathon and relay start at 6:30 a.m. and the 5k starts at 7:30 a.m. Relay teams are limited to two members.

Registration is $55 for the half-marathon, $60 for the relay, and $30 for the 5k. The price includes a T-shirt and post-race breakfast meal ticket.

Children 8 and under can run for free. Dogs on leashes are welcome.

Male and female winners of the half-marathon receive $100, with $50 to second place and $25 to third. Finishers receive a medal.

Each member of the winning relay team pockets $25, as do the overall male and female 5k champions.
