About This Activity

The Move, Emporia! event will take place as the weather turns cooler to promote a healthy Emporia.  The 10K race will begin and finish in front of Newman Regional Health, and is a challenging (somewhat hilly) 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. The 2-mile walk/fun run is an opportunity for those "non-runners" and kids to come out and move, while supporting the cause.  Proceeds from the event will again 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 affects each and every person in our community and helps to move Emporia forward!  Last year, we were able to raise $3,500, which will go toward projects such as the Cottonwood River Trail, and has allowed MUPP to purchase road safety cones and vests to loan out for area races/events.  We hope to see this number and its impact on our community continue to grow!
