Flying Angels XC Summer Classic 5K & 2 Mile
Saturday June 12, 2021
PLACE: Cessna Activity Center
2744 George Washington Blvd
Wichita, KS US 67210
Come run the inaugural Flying Angels XC Summer Classic, June 12, 2021 at Cessna Activity Center. This race will be an exciting cross country style format, with a 5K race for High School/Open racers and a 2 mile option for Middle School and 10 & Under runners.
This race supports The Flying Angels Cross Country team, a Wichita area distance running club for kids ages 6-18. The goal of the Flying Angels is to create community amongst youth runners and families, develop a love for the life long sport of running, and provide kids an opportunity to race locally, regionally, and nationally.
For running clubs, the challenge during the Covid-19 Pandemic has been finding ways to keep our members actively engaged and to offer opportunities to race (as large events were canceled or went virtual). We are excited to extend this opportunity to race, not only to our club members but to any athlete interested in competing.
