COVID -19 Update

2020 Prairie Fire Spring Races Update                                              Sponsored by

Hello Runners!
Like many of you, we have been closely monitoring the COVID 19 situation for the past several weeks. We have been in contact with the state and officials at the City of Wichita to get their input on this changing and challenging situation. Taking into consideration the CDC recommendations in recent days, we are converting the 2020 Prairie Fire Spring Races to a virtual race.

The 2020 Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon plans are to offer all runners a unique opportunity to choose your own course and complete the spring race. By creating a virtual race, we want to help and reward you for your training efforts.

What is a virtual race? A virtual race allows you to run your distance on a route you choose. It can be on the road, along a trail, on a treadmill or around a track. Once you have finished your race, share your results with us. Because of the many unknowns regarding COVID 19, we are expanding the time you can run your race. So, pick a day between May 2, 2020 and May 17, 2020 to lace up your shoes and run! These dates are based on current information that has been provided by city, county and state officials. Because of the nature and lack of information the dates may have to be adjusted later.

What does this mean for those that have already registered? We know you are disappointed and as we are always striving to be runner-friendly, we want to give you some options. You can (1) run the virtual race, (2) defer to the 2020 Fall Prairie Fire Races on Sunday, October 11, 2020 or (3) defer to the 2021 Prairie Fire Spring Races. Per our sign-up agreement, there will be no refunds.  Please go to https://runsignup.com/Profile to manage your registration.

If you signed up for the Back2Back Challenge, you will receive credit for the spring race by doing the virtual portion in the allotted time frame and then completing the fall race or defer to the 2021 Back2Back Challenge.

If you choose the virtual race, once you finish your race, you will need to submit your results to pfm@wichitasports.com. Please attach a screenshot from your running app that provides your name, distance, time, and route. In the subject line you will need to provide the bib number you are assigned. When the race is completed and we have your information, we will ship you your special commemorative shirt and medal in a timely manner.

Since we won’t be able to officially verify all runner times, we will not hand out age group and overall awards. However, we will post unofficial times of all runners who submit their final results and finish information.

Thank, please feel free to reach out to us at pfm@wichitasports.com if you have any questions.
