Details
The Speedy PD 5K/10K and Family Fun Run is a event to benefit the Meadowlark Hills Parkinson Fund. The Meadowlark Parkinson Fund helps support services for the community to improve the quality of life for all those affected by Parkinson’s disease including patients, caregivers, therapists and nurses. With this fund, Meadowlark is able to continue and expand opportunities for education, outreach, scholarships for medical purposes, medical care and a future Parkinson’s resource center for the Kansas region. 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 for 2013! Both courses are all 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 0.7mi 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 stoller friendly, and we encourage to whole family to attend! You won’t want to miss it!
