The Oldest Night Trail Race in the Midwest!
A night trail run on the Psycho WyCo trails. This is a REAL TRAIL event. Yes, I said TRAIL event. If you want to run on a sissy, paved course, this isn't the race for you! Flashlight or Headlamp use is required for all race participants.
12th Annual event.
Both the 5K and 10K courses are out-and-back, but the 10K course has a nice one-mile "lollipop" section before you head back, called "the Wyco Triangle."
All entrants receive a Race Logo Trucker cap...with a choice of colors...first come, first serve on race day. (Or you can opt for a buff).
And a race logo beer glass.
Included as part of your entry fee:
Complimentary CRAFT BEER ON TAP, cheap canned beer, and soft beverages, after the run.
All finishers receive a unique oval distance sticker.
Downloadable Mile 90 Photography photos included!!!
5K: $30 Day of Race: $35
10K: $35 Day of Race: $40
Sorry, no Canines in this race...it is usually too hot.

Lighting the Trail
A lighting device is REQUIRED EQUIPMENT to run on this trail! The course will be marked with ground-level pin flags with reflective tape on them. It's wise to have a BRIGHT headlamp or flashlight. REI in Overland Park is a great place to find one. More information about lighting, here.
You should also carry a water bottle or hydration device, since it might take you longer to get to water at an aid station.
Special Awards for Fleet of Feet
$100 cash award for first place male and first place female in the 10K.
