Our “Why?” – This race has been created to memorialize our good friend Angie Barry, who passed on February 3, 2021.  Angie was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas.  To help combat asthma, Angie started running at a young age with the Topeka Thunderbolt Track Club.  Through hard work and determination, she became very accomplished. Angie was a back-to-back state mile champion while at Topeka West High School. She went on to run for Kansas State University. Angie had an outstanding running career at K-State, where she was a member of three NCAA-National qualifying cross-country teams. She was a KU Relays winner in the 10,000 meter. She was the 1990 Big 8 champion at 10,000 meters, and qualified for the NCAA National Track & Field Championships at 10,000 meters the same year. She also held a Big 8 Conference Indoor record as a member of record-setting Distance Medley Relay. Angie was a 4-year letter winner at Kansas State University in Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track. After graduating from college, she went on to run professionally and train for the Olympics in 1992. She was sponsored by Reebok and Nike. Angie was inducted into the Topeka West Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 1999.

Our “Purpose” – Our purpose is to provide two opportunities.  First, proceeds raised by the race will be placed in a scholarship endowment fund in Angie’s name.  The scholarship(s) will be awarded yearly to a Topeka West graduating student selected through applications.  We hope to add future scholarships, in Angie’s name, in other Topeka high schools. Second, because Angie LOVED TO RACE, we want to provide an excellent race/walk consisting of a great course, great hospitality, great environment, and overall great experience!
