About This Activity

Prepare for a full day of fun with a 5K, cookout, and golf. This is the second annual 5K to be held at Sterling Meadows Golf Course. A Run Through the Meadows is a charitable 5K that travels along the Sterling Meadows Golf Course cart path. The path winds over delicate hills, around a pond, and alongside Little Labette Creek in an extended figure-eight. Oh, and don't forget the dreaded 35 degree hill approximatley 1.7 miles in to the run! This event will provide bagels, bananas, water and other snacks before and after the race. Be sure to stay for lunch, golf, and beer post-race. Following lunch, Sterling Meadows will be offering beer and free greens fees for 18 holes of golf. Please come join us and help donate to a good cause. This year our proceeds will be going to Parsons High School's and Labette County High School's science programs. Each year a new cause will be selected. This is an all-day event for those who would like to stay post-race, look forward to seeing you there!
