Will your brainy side shine or will your feet carry you to victory in this unique race?

Where: Downtown Manhattan Kansas
When: Saturday, April 29 at 9:30 am

Support the Kansas Science Festival by running or walking a 2.5-mile course from downtown Manhattan around City Park and back. While this is a timed event, it’s not just about covering the distance the fastest – participants will have to complete science puzzles along the way! This family-friendly challenge can be completed solo or in teams, and all finishers receive a medal. Teams can be comprised of all adults or a combination of youth and adults, and teams can range in size from 2 to 6 individuals. Special prizes will be awarded for the fastest finishers, most creative costumes, and more! All proceeds from the race go to support the Kansas Science Festival.

Each participant will receive a medal for completing the challenges and crossing the finish line, as well as a reusable sports bottle.  You can purchase and official race t-shirt by clicking here or clicking the image of the race shirt below.
