Local Joe Jared Estes: @JaredEstes25
When asked about his goal, Jared said, "Rebellion."
"That's really what I'm shooting for at all times, especially after facing the possibility of not walking again. A rebellion agains my circumstances and the desire to quit when things get tough."
It was a great weekend for racing in Wichita at two fantastic events. First the Race 4 Freedom 5K on Saturday, then the Meritrust Tiger Trot 15K & 5K out at Tanganika Wildlife Park on Sunday. Runners came out in full force to test their legs in preperation for the Prairie Fire Fall Race Series on October 12th. What's event better...runners ran in support of two very special organizations...Youthville and the Tanganika Winter Fund. It was an amazing weekend. Congratulations runners!
Did you see those Local Joes? Wow! Impressive effort and community participation came from our 2014 Local Joes. Participating in one or both races this weekend. The Prairie Fire Local Joes hit their 20 Miles this weekend and did it with style. When you see your Local Joes...take a moment to give the them a "HIGH 5" and tell them you can't wait to run with them on October 12th!
See you on race day!
