Amelia Earhart 2K/8K Fun Run/Walk

July 20 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am


The spirit of legendary aviatrix Amelia Earhart is alive and well in Atchison!  Each summer the community pulls out all the stops in honor of its favorite daughter, complete with a downtown music, food and crafts fair, star-filled outdoor concert, children’s activities, carnival, awards and honors, Earhart research and literature, music on the beautiful Riverfront, aerobatic performances and the grandest of all finalés — the “Concert in the Sky” fireworks show.

This family friendly race, held in conjunction with the Amelia Earhart Festival, begins and ends in front of the Atchison Family YMCA. The race is open to all, including strollers and wheelchairs. The 2K course is mostly flat with one hill up and one hill down.  The 8K is a challenging course with many hills throughout!

Early Bird Special through June 1!  For more details or to register, click here!
