Rodeo 5K & 1-mile — Pretty Prairie, KS

Avid runner? Trying to get healthy? Rodeo fan? Supporter of High School sports programs?

I am working with PPHS Cross Country head coach Jon Johnson in organizing a 5K & 1-mile race on “rodeo Saturday” in my hometown of Pretty Prairie, KS. Here are some details:

What: 5K (3.1 miles), followed by a 1-mile race/fun run.

When: Saturday, July 20, 8:30 AM

Where: Pretty Prairie, KS — Reno County (course details are Coach Johnson’s department, but I’ll work on that)

Why: Get healthy, have fun, compete, hang with family & friends. Besides, nothing beats small town hospitality.

How much: 5K is $20, 1-mile is $15, or you can do both for $25. Price includes your race fee, a t-shirt, and some other goodies. That’s a great deal, you guys.

How to register: Online @ Active.com — [here’s the link] … I’ll also have paper registrations available to Pretty Prairie folks. BUT… Be sure to register by July 13 to guarantee yourself a shirt.

Background on Pretty Prairie:

  1. Hey…. can you also help us get the word out about the Indian Taco Fundraiser for Braden Bottenberg? ( Andrea Strohl’s husband). Father of 3 yr old Brynn.

    We start serving Indian Tacos at 10:30am until people stop eating them.
    It is a free will offering.
