Brew to Brew is a 40-ish mile solo or relay race divided into ten legs of about 4 miles each. You and up to nine of your friends will meet up at Stockyards Brewing Co. in Kansas City’s historic West Bottoms. From there, along with several thousand other crazies just like you, you will traverse roads and trails from Kansas City, MO to Lawrence, KS, home of the University of Kansas. In Lawrence you’ll celebrate with your cadre of cool kids at Lawrence Beer Company where the finish line party (including food trucks & live music) will be getting down with the get down!
Brew to Brew benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Ten dollars ($10) of every runner’s registration is donated directly to CFF, and you are always welcome to donate more. In 2017 The Kansas City Running Club raised $40,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Trolley Run is one of the largest timed four-mile road races in the country. The fast and flat to downhill course is a quintessential Kansas City experience and a beloved tradition. The four-mile Trolley Run course winds through the Waldo and Brookside neighborhoods on the Harry Wiggins Trolley Track Trail and ends on the historic Country Club Plaza. Proceeds from the race benefit the visually impaired children at the Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired (CCVI).
At Girls on the Run, we inspire girls to live a joyful, healthy, confident life, using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
