  • Walkers and those doing Run/Walk mix line up after the 13-minute pace group on Indian Creek Parkway
  • Strollers line up in the parking lot next to Building 40, in our “stroller’s alley” lined with balloons (you will merge onto the street after the runners/walkers take off). Remember, our insurance requires that those pushing strollers walk only during the entire event.

Volunteers and signs will help you find your section. Your cooperation will help ensure a safe start. Thank you! See MD5K Start/Finish map for details.

PARKING

Parking is plentiful in Corporate Woods. Enter Corporate Woods from either Antioch or College Boulevard (look for signs with arrows). Plan to arrive no later than 7:15 am as Overland Park Police restrict traffic around the course after 7:30 am. See course/parking Course/Parking map for details.

START & FINISH

Start & finish in front of Building 40, 9401 Indian Creek Parkway, near our beautiful balloon arch.

You will be timed electronically by computer timing chip. Your chip is attached to the back of your race bib. You must cross both the start and finish lines to receive your official time in Race Results.

WATER

CLOTHING CHECK

Clothing check will be available in the big tent near Packet Pick-Up. Label your gym bag with your name. Please leave valuables at home or locked in the trunk of your vehicle.

COURSE SAFETY

Course safety is important. Although the course is monitored by Overland Park Police and our volunteers, please be careful, follow instructions, and watch out for vehicles.

RESULTS

Results will be available at the computers in the big tent race morning and on this website race day afternoon.

For everyone’s safety, NO HEADSETS or similar devices, skates, bicycles, wagons, dogs, or motorized vehicles are allowed on the course. Strollers or baby joggers must start at the back and may walk only. Please keep your child in the stroller while out on the race course.
