Chisholm Trail Marathon

Wichita’s newest marathon puts runners on a path through history along the original Chisholm Trail.

This Boston Marathon qualifier is a USATF and RRCA certified course allowing participants to run the same streets Wyatt Earp walked.

This 12-turn course will encourage runners to break their personal records and will help train them for the Boston Marathon.

For those in training or not interested in a full marathon, the Chisholm Trail Half Marathon provides the perfect alternative. The 13.1-mile course has six turns and will offer a flat, fast route, culminating in a downhill kick toward the finish.
