Who we are

In 2010, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission took ownership of the Prairie Fire Marathon, which had previously been known as the Wichita Marathon. For the first time, not only was a full marathon race offered, but also a half marathon, 5K, youth marathon and one-mile walk.  In 2013, we expanded into the spring running season offering a half marathon, 5K, Sparky's kids mile and a fun run/walk. Both the spring and fall events make up the Prairie Fire Race Series.
 
Since the inaugural race in 2010, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission has contributed over $100,000 to other local charities and organizations.
