The MKA Invitational returns for the 2013 Rescue Run!
The Miracle onKansas Avenue Invitational is intended to provide a less-congested 5K race course in order to promote more state records and honor roll qualifiers on the flat and fast USATF certified course, from the 100 male and 100 female runners with the fastest qualifying times. Qualifying standards and all information is available on the MKA Invitational page. Having faster runners to compete in their own race allows more room for non-competition runners and walkers to enjoy the traditional Rescue Run without the hassles and intimidation of having to yield to so many passing runners. Start time for the MKA Invitational is 4:20pm and the traditional Rescue Run will start at 5pm as it always has.
We’re Aiming to Set A New Participant Record!
Last year we had over 700 participants. This year, our goal is more than 1000 participants. Please help us recruit your friends. Like us on Facebook, leave a comment about how much fun you had last year or in other years and make plans with your friends to register now for the race.
New Opportunity for Giving
This year, donations of new toys for Christmas will be collected at the Rescue Run. These toys will be used to bless thousands of children who are homeless or in need from the Topeka community. What better way to top off a great evening than to give to children in need! More details to follow concerning collection locations.
