Welcome!

KC Express is a group for women who love to run or walk together. Since 1982, our non-profit club has been helping women find new friends, new races, better fitness, and active fun through running and walking. We host:

  • Saturday morning walking and running groups:  We meet every week, year round.  Bring your energy and a smile, and we’ll provide the structure to make your fitness goals stick: on-couse support, run/walk your own pace and distance, and make friends along the way.
  • “First Tuesdays”: Join us each month for a light dinner, social time, and guest speakers on topics relevant to women’s health and fitness.
  • The Mother’s Day 5K: Every spring we put on KC’s best race for women, reaching 3500 women and girls.

Whatever your running or walking goals may be, you’ll find friends among the women of KC Express.  JOIN TODAY!
