International Race has four runners
• Special to the Leader & Times
Two sisters will race against each other March 8 in the International Pancake Day Race, as Melanie Knudsen, 19, joins her sister Mikayla, 21, as a contestant. This will be Melanie’s first International race, while Mikayla is competing for the fourth time. Other contestants are first-time racers Misty Vaught, 35, and Nicole Schowengerdt, 28.
Race sign-ups for all ages continue through Saturday. The Men’s Pacer Race and the Women’s Last Chance Race both have contestants but still have space available. Some children’s categories are full.
The International Race pits the women of Liberal against the ladies of Olney, England. This race is limited to women age 18 or older with a Liberal address who have “domestic duties.” (High school students who are 18 should enter the youth division.)
Sign-ups are at the Tourist Information Center, One Yellow Brick Road, across from the Coronado Museum. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Children under 18 must have a parent or guardian present to sign the form. No late sign-ups will be accepted. For more information on any event, call 624-6423.
