Run For 811

The 811 Run started in West Palm Beach, Florida and is now spreading across the nation. Mississippi, North Carolina, Minnesota, and now Kansas are all joining in the national push to spread the 811 word. 811 is a federally-mandated national "Call Before You Dig" number, created to help protect individuals from hitting underground utility lines while digging. Whether you are a homeowner or professional excavator, calling 811 before you dig will get your utility lines marked at no cost.

Southern Star and TransCanada will be hosting a Run/Walk at the Shawnee Mission Park in Shawnee, KS, on Saturday August 10th, 2013 at 7:00 AM. The race is open to the first 400 registrants. The entry fee is inexpensive for preregistration at only $8.11 per person which includes a t-shirt. The week prior to the race, registration increases to $25. Registration the day of the event increases to $30. Preregister now by visiting:
