Come join us as we run wild through the streets of Cowtown! This fun 5K will take you through Wichita's wild west, along the Museum District, and along the Arkansas River. The course is open for runners seeking a personal best while offering enough eye appeal for those looking for a nice stoll with the family. All participants will receive a t-shirt and participation medal. Awards will also be given by age group and gender.

Additional recognition will be given to runners beating "outlaws" to the finish line. Each outlaw represents an Old Cowtown gang. If you beat the outlaw across the finish line, you have collected their bounty. Outlaws will run the 5K at 20, 25, 30, and 35 minutes (give or take). If you collect the bounty you will receive a slider medal to attach to your participation award. These medals are beautiful and will truly be a showpiece to your running collection. The participation medal design is based upon a mounted posse tailing wanted outlaws. 

After the run, join us for an ice-cold sarsaparilla and the best awards cermony West of the Pecos! If sarsaparilla is not your thing, we will have other frosty drinks to wet your whistle!  Finisher medals will come in gold, silver, and bronze (1st, 2nd, and 3rd repectively) for the categories listed below.

5K Course

The 5K course is certified through USATF. It starts at the Empire House in Cowtown, goes through the streets of the Old West, exits out to the bike path and along the river. Runners will cross the river twice, return to Cowtown and finish at the Empire House.

Lil' Buckaroo Stampede Course

The kids will race around the streets of Cowtown for approximately two city blocks or 1/4 mile. For those unfamiliar with Cowtown, these streets are not connected to any traffic and there will be no automobiles on these streets. In other words, the kids will be completely safe from traffic and within the museum compound.

Post-Race Activities

All participants are encouraged to explore Cowtown after their events are complete. The awards ceremony will begin after the runners finish. Cold drinks will be available to participants and food trucks will be on grounds when you get hungry. We hope that you will take a relaxing stroll through Wichita's historic streets and enjoy what has become our passion; Wichita's proud American history!
