The Annual Horsethief Run (formerly the CPA Run) is directed by the EHS Cross Country coaches and parents in honor of the early settlers of Eudora.  CPA stands for the Central Protective Agency (it has also been said that it stands for Cattleman’s Protective Agency…you can decide), a division of the Anti-Horsethief Association, and was representative of a group of citizens who banded together to bring law and order to early Eudora.

There will be more information coming about other CPA events in the days ahead such as the Annual Golf Tournament and all events that surround the CPA picnic. Make sure to check back for more information leading up to the CPA Picnic.
