Description

This will be our third annual marathon/relay marathon from Wichita Brewing Company West to Wichita Brewing Company East.  This will be a fun spring run the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day.  The course is USATF certified for the serious runners.  But, will be set up with five interchanges for teams of six runners to run the marathon.  The course will stick to the Wichita bike paths as much as possible for the safety of all the runners.

Caramel.  The second leg will run to McLean and St. Paul.  The third leg will run to Exploration place the south bridge of the Keeper of the Plains.  The fourth leg will run to Pawnee and St. Francis.  The fifth leg will run to George Washington and Oliver.  The last leg will bring it home to WBC East.  We will have water at each interchange and in between the interchanges as well.  We will stop timing after 6 hours.
