Stars & Stripes 5K

July 4th, 2016

The holiday weekend was a rainy one, to put it lightly. Some of that humidity hung around Monday morning, but that did not stop over 530 runners from participating in the 5K race. The course began inside Cessna Stadium and then ventured out around the Wichita State Campus. Many were festive in red, white and blue and everyone received a t-shirt and a finishers' medal.

The event was well put on by the Wichita Running Company and included chip timing. First place clocked in at under 16 & 1/2 minutes; way to go! Lil' Firecrackers were the cutest with their fun runs between 50 and 200 yards according to age group.

Shocker Fitness w/Coach Bolt was the charity sponsor for the event; click here to check out an overview of their fitness program held at WSU.

We love being able to provide free muscle therapy to participants, spectators and volunteers and hope to see you at one of our next races!
