Run with us in the Tonganoxie Library Run 5K, 10K and 5K walk

2015 Tonganoxie t-shirt final
Run with us!
The 28th Annual Tonganoxie Library Run is June 13. Registration is OPEN NOW. Day of the event registration opens at 6:00AM and the RUN starts at 7:30AM. We’ll have a 5K race and a 10K race. And if running isn’t your thing, we have a 5K walk, too.
We hope you’ll join us for the run. Last year, more than 200 people signed up for the race, and together we raised more than $6,000.
This year, any funds that remain after race expenditures will help us build a new library.
Because our population has doubled since our current building first opened, and because our community’s technology needs have overtaken our current facility’s design, we’ve started the process of expanding and enhancing our library downtown.
You can read more about the project and some exciting volunteer opportunities on the Tonganoxie Library Run Facebook page:
Entry fees for the races and walk are $25 per person, $35 per couple and $10 for each additional family member. Prices go up $10 after May 15. All funds that remain after expenditures will go into a building fund for a new or expanded library downtown.
And for an additional $25 donation to the building fund, runners also have an opportunity to have their name or their family’s name listed on this year’s race T-shirt.
You can register at or you can pick up a registration form at the library. 
And if you’re interested in sponsorship opportunities, please send us an email at
Thanks, and we’ll see you at the library run on June 13!
