Welcome to Race the Chase, the Midwest’s premiere off-road endurance running event! Founded in 2014 by Dirty Kanza Promotions, this run gives you an unprecedented opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful, remote, and rugged off road running in the Midwest. Starting and finishing in historic Cottonwood Falls, KS, Race the Chase takes you through the Tallgrass National Preserve in Chase County. The preserve, located in the heart of the Flint Hills is nearly 11,000 acres of preserved tallgrass prairie and is home to much wildlife including bison! Coupled with it’s rugged terrain and gorgeous vistas, it offers an endurance running experience like no other.
Race the Chase offers four different distances for runners of varying abilities to test their mettle on the unforgiving prairie, 50k, 25k, 10k, and an introductory, non-competitive 5k. You’ll get nearly every surface possible as you traverse pavement, dirt and gravel roads, single track, and even cattle paths. No matter which distance you choose to attempt, you are guaranteed to have a good time! So lace up your running shoes, get to training, and we will see you in Chase County!
