Unless you're running, you may not think traffic is moving at race speeds on downtown-area streets Sunday .

Parts of Douglas, Maple and McLean are among the Wichita roads where runners will race in Sunday morning's Prairie Fire 5K and half marathon.

The half marathon starts at 7:30 a.m. followed by the 5K start at 7:50 a.m., the race website lists. The half marathon awards ceremony is schedule for 10:20 a.m.

Several downtown Wichita, Riverside and Delano roads will be monitored during the race, and the Wichita Police Department may close some of them, the race website says. You can find maps of both race routes below.
