The Big Chill is the inaugural fundraising race benefiting Communities In Schools of Mid-America (CIS of Mid-America). This event features one of Emporia's two half-marathons, as well as a 5K and a 10K route. The course takes runners past two Emporia schools currently hosting the CIS of Mid-America program, Logan Avenue Elementary and Walnut Elementary, before ending back at the starting line, which is located at 618 Commercial Street. During the course, runners will enjoy the beautiful scenery of downtown Emporia (and ESU for the 10K and half-marathon). In addition, Mile Marker Sponsors will be cheering on runners and offering water/support throughout the course.
Watch the runners come in at our Finish Line Party, located in downtown Emporia!
*We are proud to partner with Thomas Felts Photography, LLC to offer runners professional photography both before and during the race.
The Big Chill is the final race offered in the 2018 Emporia Super Series. Don't miss out on your chance to get one last race in before the winter season hits!
This fundraising race benefits the CIS of Mid-America program in Central Kansas. This program is currently providing support services to more than 1,000 students in Emporia and El Dorado.
*All runners in the 2018 race will receive our signature ear warmer as a participant gift!
