Über Run for Missions

Set for its annual running this year, Haviland’s Run for Missions Half Marathon, 10K & 5K takes runners on an out-and-back loop that starts and finishes on Elm Street in this small town in southern Kansas.

Designed as a benefit to raise money for the “Run for Missions” scholarship fund organized by the Evangelical Friends Church Mid America, the race takes runners along a combination of paved roads through neighborhoods in the town and some dirt roads and off-road trails for brief stretches, including a long out-and-back stretch into the rural farm fields that lie just north of town.



Aid Station #2 has a portable toilet that you will pass twice. Additional aid-stations (#3 & #4 - which may be unmanned) will have water and GU Energy Gels (this totals seven aid-stations on the course – 3 of them you hit twice).

Maximale Zeit

You have an hour to finish the 5K – so you can easily walk three sub-20 minute miles. You can have up to 2 hours to finish the 10K and 3 hours to finish the Half-Marathon.


Oz Endurance will provide chip timing for all three 2016 races. The MyLaps BibTag chip timing system will be used. Your race number, that you will pick up in your packet on race morning, is also your chip for timing purposes. Please do not bend or remove the timing chip from the back of the bib number. You should only wear a race bib if you are registered in the race and it corresponds with your name and information. It is also very important for your number to be on the front and visible at the finish line, so please attach it to the outside of any clothing.

Barclay College, Haviland

101 Elm St, Haviland, KS 67059, USA




The course in and around Haviland will be part pavement, part dirt roads, and even have a cross-country section (and then a country road loop for the second half of the 10K). The 5K and 10K will start together at 9:00 am, and the half-marathon at 8:00 am, in front of the Hockett Auditorium at Barclay College (half block east of Main Street on E. Elm Street in Haviland). The 5K course will go west on Elm to Main, north on Main to Sycamore and then follow the blue highlighted route marked by blue arrows (staying north of the railroad track the whole time) to the finish line in front of Hockett Auditorium. The 10K (and Half-Marathon) will split off about 2 blocks before the finish line, cross the sidewalk in front of Phillips Hall of Barclay College, and then continue east on Elm and follow the green highlighted route and green arrows for the country road loop to finish in at the same finish line in front of the Barclay gym. Please note that the 10K has a very fun cross-country section east of the Haviland Sewer Pond. This is a very runnable section through a double-track field access path/road. We’ll do our best to make sure it is as clear as possible but it is very runnable and only a short little section of higher grass – not to worry! On the day of the run, the course will be well marked by volunteers, signs, cones, and white flour-marked arrows on the ground. The course will have one water station in the 5K loop and one water station in the 10K section. Water will be available at the finish line as well. The courses have been measured by GPS technology. The race will be held regardless of weather but the course is subject to change depending on the weather.

Half-marathon: Course follows 10K course until Mile 4.6 (upper right hand corner on the map) at the aid station. The course will go 2.45 miles east and then back west 0.45 miles, then north 1 mile, west 1 mile and then south 1 mile and then west 2 miles back to the black top road north of Haviland where you will turn left (south) towards the finish. Check in with a race official at the Half-Marathon turn around at the 0.45 mile out and back section by calling out your Bib Number.
