2016 MKA Rescue Run brought to you by Today’s Dentistry – November 26, 2016

FREE PHOTOS are available at the Rescue Run again this year!  Visit http://runandshootphoto.smugmug.com/Rescue-Run-5K-2015 to find yourself and your friends, and download your free pictures from the 2015 Rescue Run!

For 2016, the start and finish lines will still be located near the Topeka Tower, just as they always have.  The course will incorporate a portion of our original 4 Mile course as well as portions of our most recent 5K courses.  We will also get up close and personal with our beautiful State Capitol!  The majority of the race course will follow this years’ parade route, (the race start line is on 6th Avenue just west of Kansas Avenue) which for the first lap will track west on 6th to Harrison, south on Harrison to 8th, east on 8th to Kansas, south on Kansas to 9th, west on 9th across Jackson and onto the State Capitol grounds, continuing west on the private driveway, through the tunnel under the south steps of the Capitol and continuing west to Harrison, south on Harrison to 10th, east on 10th to Kansas, and north on Kansas back to 6th.  The second lap will begin just as the first lap did tracking west on 6th to Harrison, south on Harrison to 10th, east on 10th to Kansas, and north on Kansas to the finish line just north of 6th Ave at 534  S Kansas Avenue.  All runners will do two laps of the race course and all runners will be electronically timed.  Walkers will have the option of doing one or two laps of the course.  The race course is USATF certified, certification number KS15042KH.

Since you’ll be leading the parade, you’ll receive glow items in your packet and you’re encouraged to wear numerous lights and holiday costumes.  Bring more of your own lights and “light up the night!”  The “Brightest Light” male and female chosen by popular vote at the awards ceremony will receive a special award.  So, show up, dress up, and let everyone see your holiday spirit!
