Welcome to the Prairie Fire Race Series!

The Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission, a 501(c)6 business non-profit, has operated the annual marathon since 2010 when it was rebranded from the Wichita Marathon to the Prairie Fire Marathon which is held on the second Sunday of October. The Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon was added in 2013 and is held on the first Sunday of May.

The Prairie Fire Marathon is a USATF Certified Race (KS19019TJD) and a Boston Marathon Qualifier with a fast double loop course design taking runners through the heart of Wichita. Runners begin in the Old Town district, run along the Douglas Design District, and pass through the lively College Hill area. After turning around, runners head through Downtown Wichita before taking in the views along the Arkansas River and the historic Riverside Park area. This course is shared with the Prairie Fire Half Marathon.
