The 6th Annual Run Like a Girl in memory of Sarah Burkybile will be held on Saturday, October 7th. Sarah's life & spirit touched and inspired many before her passing just a few months before the innaugural Run Like a Girl in 2012 and her memory continues to inspire many today. The 1 Mile Fun Run will be held this year in memory of Stephanie Cook and her enormous impact on Galena's schools and community.
The race will be run along historic Route 66 on a certified 5K course that begins and ends at Pappy Litch Park on 6th and Main Street, Galena, KS.
Chip timing will be provided by Twelveone Race Management of Joplin, MO. There is also an untimed 1 mile fun run. Walkers are welcome to do the 5K and everyone receives a participation award. There will be a brief ceremony with Stephanie's kids to honor and recognize her beginning at 4:00 PM, followed immediately by the 1 Mile Fun Run. The 5K begins at 5:00 PM. Packet pick up and race day registration begin at 2:00 PM & will close at 4:40 PM. All 5K participants receive a race shirt and bag.
Proceeds benefit the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks, that Sarah was extremely active in, and 2 scholarships (1 in Sarah's honor and 1 in Stephanie's honor) to seniors graduating from Galena High School.
