Newton Fire/EMS hosting community run
Registration is open for Newton Fire/EMS Department’s first community run to promote cardiovascular fitness.
The Fueled by Fire Run is set for 7:30 a.m. Sept. 8. It will feature 2-mile and 9-mile courses that begin and end at Athletic Park and follow the Sand Creek Bike Path. The 9-mile course was specifically scheduled for those training for the Prairie Fire Half Marathon in October in Wichita.
Registration is $20 for the 2-mile run and $25 for the 9-mile run. Participants are encouraged to register at www.fueledbyfirenewton.net. Same-day registration and check-in will begin at 6 a.m.
Each participant will receive a Fueled by Fire t-shirt, and each 9-mile runner will receive a finisher’s medal. Course routes and other information is available on the website.
Event proceeds will benefit the Community Chaplain Response Team, which provides support to first responders, training and certification to chaplains and volunteers, and problem-solving for community issues.
