The second annual Make a Joyful Noise 5K will take place Saturday, September 3, 2016 at 8:30 am at New Life Christian Church, 1505 Rd 175 Emporia KS 66801.  Runners/walkers will start out at the church building, travel west on Rd 175 to make a loop around Thorndale (Locust Ln, Rd 180, and Lakeshore Dr), return east on Rd 175 to make 2 loops around the prayer walk and wooded areas of the church property, and return to the church building for a welcoming finish line celebration. Parking will be available along the south and west ends of the church parking lot.  

 Please plan to arrive, EVEN IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PICKED UP YOUR PACKET, by 8:15 am.  If you plan to pick up your packet Saturday morning, please plan accordingly as some may be registering during the 7:15-8:00 timeframe.  We want to make sure we have everyone registered and ready to line up by the 8:15 time. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. 

After the race please plan to stick around until 9:45 for our awards ceremony.  We will have plenty of good food and company to keep you full and entertained.  At this race we like to celebrate all finishers, first and last.  Join us to celebrate one another's achievements!
