COVID Update: 7.29.20
-The Sunflower Trail Runs are all anticipated to take place on 8.29.20. Reno county does not currently have a gathering limit. (IF this would change, we will make arrangements to allow for registered runners to still run/walk the course on a time that suits them throughout our Sunflower Festival.)
-We are planning for options if necessary to allow for staggered start times if the need is warranted based upon number of runners per race.
-The trails will be throughout 20+ acres of sunflowers so this will allow for plenty of space to social distance.
-The 5K course will be a double lap through the sunflowers. The 1 Mile course will not repeat itself.
-Hand sanitizer will be available and we will encourage guests to use it.
All participants will receive an original Sunflower Trail Run Finisher t-shirt, Sunflower Trail Run finisher medal, free 1-day admission to the Kansas Maze Sunflower Festival for participant and guest and a gift bag of coupons from generous local businesses. ** T-shirts not guaranteed if registered after Aug 1. **
