Presents the 7th Annual
WICKED MARATHON /HALF MARATHON/5K/OZ Series
2020 event canceled
As of March 17th, 2020 the Wicked Marathon/Half Marathon/5K/OZ series canceled due to the COVID-19 VIRUS and the rules set by the CDC and KDHE. The City of Wamego voted 4-0 to rescind the permit for the race. We have decided to move everything to the virtual races effective immediately. I can’t even tell you how hard this is for me to do because we have already planned the race and paid for most of the things. I hope you can understand that this is unprecedented times and completely out of our control. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
