Prairie Elementary’s PTA is again hosting the annual Prairie Pride 5K this year — but the event will likely have a bit of a different look.
The organizers have moved away from promoting the event through KC Running Company, and are instead trying to attract more community participants.
The group is putting on a competition to see which local school, church, business or non-profit can enroll the most runners. The winner will earn Prairie’s “Community Cup” trophy. Schools that register runners will get $5 of the every runner’s registration cost back as a donation to their PTA.
To register, visit Prairie5K.com. Registration cost before Sept. 9 is $22. After Sept. 9, it is $25.
The run itself will be Sept. 21 with the one mile fun run/walk starting at 8 a.m. and the 5K starting at 8:30 a.m.
Post-run refreshments will be provided by Liberty Fruit, TCBY, Foo’s Frozen Custard (which is in charge of coffee) and Einstein Brothers, among others.
