There are misunderstandings and/or rumors

going around, we would like to clear up.


    KRA has NOT "Retired", and has

        NOT "Closed"!!  

We are still timing some events...

We just could not keep up with 50+ events every year.

We had 3 sets of timing equipment, and not enough volunteers.    We kept one set for timing a few events each year!


NOTE!!   A few events WILL be Timed and personally serviced by KRA.  And, we will be increasing the opportunity for private run-coaching to individuals.

 “KRA has grown way beyond our imaginations!  And with it has come many blessings, but also very wearing on both me and my family. KRA was in need of even more volunteers that could not be found,” Bill Crane said.  


  By the way, from the sales of some of the equipment, KRA has also given back thousands of dollars to the community by giving it to the North Central Indiana Right-To-Life, Warsaw, IN.    Check out their website: nci4life.org/





KRA’s Director wants thank all of the local organizations that helped them become an association that helped charities raise both awareness and much needed funds to continue their work.  Some of the larger contributors were Resia Rinker of Lakeside Fitness; K-21 Health Foundation; Kosciusko Foundation with the REMC Roundup grants; and, Dr. Dane and Mary Louise Miller Foundation.  Tens of thousands of dollars have been raised by local charities the first four years of electronic timing.  But because of more events and getting larger each year that KRA timed, charities raised about a quarter of a million dollars each   year of the last three years.    “This has been the greatest blessing to all of the staff of KRA,” said Mary Crane.

"Do you know that those who run in a race all run... but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. And everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but Christians an imperishable trophy ."
