See you at the Spring Prairie Fire Half Marathon

Via Christi is the presenting sponsor for the Spring Prairie Fire Half Marathon race series, to be held May 4, 2014, in downtown Wichita. Fun fitness activities are available for people for all ages and fitness levels.

The spring series includes a half marathon, 5K, Sparky’s Kids Mile and the My Heart. My Life. Red Fun Run & Walk.

My Heart. My Life. Red Fun Run & Walk

The My Heart. My Life. Red Fun Run & Walk, sponsored by Via Christi Health, the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, is a mile-long family-friendly run or stroll along the Arkansas River. The event starts at 9:45 a.m. in front of the Wichita Boathouse. The cost is $15. Pre-registration is required and may be done online.

If you want to take part, remember you’ll want to wear an old shirt and prepare to get “red” along the way and celebrate at the finish line with a red balloon release.


Registration is open now for the spring and fall race series, for which you can register individually or for both as part of the Back to Back challenge.

Additional details, including volunteer opportunities, event prices and deadlines, are available at

Packet pick-up

Race participants can pick up their registration packets during KidFest, slated for 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, May 3, at Century II Exhibition Hall. Via Christi also is a sponsor of KidFest.
