Kansas City Spirit 5K

Saturday, Jun 23, 2018 at 7:30am


Don’t miss the chance to be a part of an historic race right here in Kansas City! The KC Spirit 5K is a competitive 5K driven by the spirit of a people who relentlessly strive for greater heights. If you have this spirit, you want to be there on June 23, 2018. The only question is: HAVE YOU QUALIFIED YET? Time standards can be found here, and qualification attempts can be done using any certified 5K.

How To Run The 5K:  In order to participate in the 5K event, you must first run a qualifying time at another 5K. Once you hit that qualifying time, you are eligible to sign up for the KC Spirit 5K. If you do not hit the qualifying standard, you can still participate in the 5K by raising/donating $100 to a local charity through our charity entry program. If neither of those options work for you, consider participating in The Paseo Mile, open to anyone
