Registration Begins for SCKMC Landrush

June 10, 2016

Scheduled for August 27th, the Landrush will have a new course layout for participants, and an expanded vendor area for spectators. However the biggest change is the addition of a 2K kids fun run for ages 8 – 14.

Last August South Central Kansas Medical Center hosted their first major fundraising event, the SCKMC Landrush. The twelve-obstacle, 5K race had 135 participants and raised over $9,000 in its inaugural year. Now hospital staff are preparing for the 2016 fundraiser obstacle race.

“This year should be even bigger and better,” said Clayton Pappan, SCKMC’s Chief Operations Officer and chairperson for the race’s planning committee. “We wrapped up last year with a debriefing meeting to really break down what went well and where we could improve. That is exactly where the committee picked back up this year, taking those ideas and running with it, literally.”

Scheduled for August 27th, the Landrush will have a new course layout for participants, and an expanded vendor area for spectators. However the biggest change is the addition of a 2K kids fun run for ages 8 – 14.

“The minimum age for last year’s run was something the committee debated a lot. We eventually agreed not to allow children to participate, mainly because we didn’t know ourselves just how challenging the obstacles would be. But then we noticed after the event several kids running the course, playing in the mud, and just having a great time,” Pappan said.

The fun run is an untimed event that will take place on a shortened track. The course will have six obstacles, each selected with the safety of the children in mind.

Another change is the addition of corporate teams. Businesses who would like to pay for their employees registration fees will be provided with a unique code for their team members to enter on the race registration website.  Use of the code waives all upfront fees for the runner and allows for the business to be invoiced for their team.

“Many employers have health programs for their staff, and obviously health is at the core of our mission for this event. We were approached about the possibility of corporate teams and group invoicing, it made sense so we made it happen,” Pappan said.

Businesses interested in a corporate team should contact Pappan at South Central Kansas Medical Center, 620-442-2500. Individuals who would like to participate in either the adult 5K or kids 2K fun run can find out more information and register online at www.sckmc.org. An early registration discount applies to all entries before July 30th.
