Meadowlark is alive. That was obvious from the moment we walked in the door.

The Speedy PD has one of the most unique race courses in this area. Set at the beautiful Tuttle Creek State Park, both the 5K and 10K courses are USATF certified! Both courses are on paved roads. The 5K course is very flat to the finish. The 10K course includes a nice mile and a half climb – by the time you reach the top you will be confident you can conquer anything! A fast finish is guaranteed with the last 0.7 mile decent to Race Headquarters. Both courses include scenic views of the lake, and a great atmosphere with volunteers and supporters lining the course.
The race routes are stroller friendly, and we encourage the whole family to attend!
Unique age group awards will be presented at the completion of each race. Prize money will be awarded to the overall top finishers for the 10K race!
T-shirts will be provided to all participants who sign up before the early-registration deadline.
At Race Headquarters, participants will be rewarded with an incredible selection of fresh fruit from Eastside and Westside Markets, Panera bagels, Pepsi products, refreshing milk from Highland Dairy, and a feast of Cox Bros BBQ and beer provided by Flint Hills Beverage Company (ID required). Non-participants will be able to purchase BBQ and beer for a small fee.
Also at Race Headquarters, enjoy a complimentary massage from Body First.
Take time to interact with the individuals you are supporting with your race entries and donations, many members of the Meadowlark Parkinson Program will be present to cheer on race participants!
