WEEKLY GROUP RUNS
Kansas City Running Club group runs (and walks) are FREE and informal. If you are not a KCR member, you are welcome to attend, try them out a few times by just showing up, and join once you have decided it is a right fit for you. Sign up to be a KC Running Club member here! ($30 annual membership fee.)
The Weekly Group Runs do change times and/or locations occasionally so keep an eye on our website or “like” the KCR Facebook Page for any weekly reminders! Traveling to Kansas City? We love visitors!
Kansas City Running Club wants to connect runners and walkers in their own neighborhoods. There is most likely a group run close to you. This is a great way to stay motivated, hook up with runners that run your same pace, log some miles, and make some new friends. If you have an existing group or want to start one, let us know and we will help you find other runners in your neighborhood.
