DashKCK 5K Race/Walk
The Kansas City Metro's premier 5K is back! DaskKCK welcomes both runners and walkers! It is a timed event, with awards given to the top three finishers in the following categories – women’s adult, men’s adult, and youth timed. However, youth under the age of 18 years old have the option of being timed or untimed. The untimed Youth Fun Run/Walk for under age 18 is so that students who have restrictions related to school athletic eligibility may still walk/run if they wish.
The 5K will begin at the Beatrice Lee Community Center next to Big 11 Lake Park. The race goes north to Jersey Creek Park and then returns to the starting point. Packet pickup will be the morning of the event starting at 7:30 AM. The race will start at 8:30 AM, with some warm-up drills prior to the beginning of the race. Water is provided at the race site and mid-way along the route. However, we also recommend that runners and walkers hydrate earlier that morning.
After the 5K and the awards, everyone is invited to the Library in the Park festivities at Big 11 Lake Park, including live music and a Best Tacos Tasting with free tacos from multiple restaurants and vendors, and free ice cream. View photos from last year's event on our Facebook page.
