Philanthropic running shoes pound USA Track & Field–certified courses in the crisp morning air to raise money for summer-camp scholarships for disadvantaged Topeka community children and teens. Starting at 7:30 a.m., both races tear out of Hummer Sports Park, with the 5K race dashing down to 8th Avenue and back. Meanwhile, the 13.25-mile half-marathon covers a wide circuit around downtown Topeka, skirting Washburn Park before cutting a swathe through Big Shunga Park and the Shunga Trail, as water stations carry out age-old feuds with fire stations. Outfitted in complimentary running shirts, horse-and-chariotless charioteers careen toward the finish line, where medals and post-race refreshments await. The proceeds go to help underprivileged 8–16 year olds spend their summer enjoying the sporting life on the Washburn University campus.
