This event will take place as the weather turns cooler to promote a healthy Emporia. The 10K race will begin and finish just West of Central Care Cancer Center (1401 W. 12th), and is a challenging and interesting looped course, which will run alongside the Emporia Country Club and cut through the Morningside neighborhoods and Jones Park in the Northwest area of Emporia. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Emporia's Multi-Use Path Planning (MUPP) board, whose mission is to provide citizens of all ages safe routes to schools, places of work, shopping, and recreation, while promoting physical activity and preservation of the environment. The work of MUPP should affect each and every person in our community and help move Emporia forward!
