Traffic Control

This is a traffic controlled course. Wichita and Eastborough Police Departments will be manning all major intersections, and volunteers will be in the neighborhoods. In many areas, only one side of the road will be blocked off for a running lane. Please make sure you are running on the correct side of the cone as to avoid serious injury.

Although we make every attempt to stop traffic for runners, there is always the possibility that a driver will not obey the barricades. For this reason, please be alert to your surroundings at all times. We also highly recommend that you do not run with headphones as they may distract you from observing your surroundings.

Opening and Closing Times

The full marathon course will be open for seven hours beginning at 7:30 a.m. The course closes at 2:30 p.m. If runners choose to continue after 2:30 p.m. they do so at their own risk. After 2:30 p.m. you will be asked to move from the streets to the sidewalks and obey all traffic signals along the course.

Please arrange a meeting place with loved ones before the race begins, as we will not use the public address system to page family members; unless a child is missing.
