Dexter BBQ Fun Run

The 2020 Dexter BBQ 5K and 2 Mile Run is scheduled for Saturday, July 11, 2020 at 8:00am.


Packet pickup

Registration (on-site) and packet pick up begin at 6:30am. Your bib, timing equipment, shirt and other information will be available at one location (near the pavilion on the east side of Main St.)


The Wichita Running Company will do the official timing for the event. Your times will be made available after the completion of the run.


We ask that you NOT park on Main Street near the Start/Finish line. There is plenty of parking on side streets and a church parking lot one block west of the line. Please do not block any driveways or park anywhere that may interfere with the Start/Finish line


The roads will NOT be closed to through traffic. Volunteers will be at many intersections and will slow traffic or stop them temporarily as runners/walkers pass by. Many intersections will only have cones with directional arrows. Please be aware of any vehicles (on the streets and exiting driveways) and be cautious at all times.


While many volunteers will be at intersections, there will be others on the Bike Patrol. A member of the Bike Patrol will lead the race; others will be roaming throughout town and also one behind the last participant. If you need any assistance, please contact a volunteer at any time during the event.


There will be food/water at the end of the race for all participants.

Hydration Station

A hydration station will be set up at the 1 mile mark for all participants and at the 2.5 mile mark for those doing the 5K.

Medical Assistance

The Winfield Fire/EMS Dept will have paramedics at the race for any medical needs.

Awards Ceremony

Awards will be presented after everyone has crossed the finish line (approximately 9:00-9:30aam). 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place medals will be given to the top three female and male finishers in the 5K only.

Door Prizes

Door prizes will be drawn at random after the Awards Ceremony. You must be present to win.

Severe Weather

If severe weather is in the area, the race will NOT happen. If a shelter is needed, we will take everyone to the Dexter Outreach Church (1 block west of the Start/Finish line) until the severe weather has passed. Once it is safe we will start the race as soon as possible unless it is still raining (see below). Our goal is to keep everyone safe, but still have our event.


Some of the timing equipment could be compromised in the rain. If it is raining, we will postpone the start of the race until the rain stops. If the rain sets in for the day, we will move the race to another weekend.

Pets and Strollers

This is a family friendly event so pets and strollers are encouraged. However, all pets must be on a leash and not allowed to run loose. If you do bring a pet or stroller, please be courteous to other participants and position yourself at the rear of the pack at the starting line.

Refund Policy

We will NOT refund any race entry fees for any reason. If the race is postponed due to the weather, we will have it another weekend as soon as possible. We will notify everyone as soon as it is scheduled.

After the Race

Visit the Senior Citizens’ Center or Grouse Valley Grill and Catering for breakfast before you leave town.

Registration is open!!
