RUN/WALK/TRAIN

Running and Walking with KC Express

Ever wondered about those crazy people who get up early to run and walk on Saturday mornings? Try it — you might like it!  Training with a group can be more rewarding and motivating than training alone. Our Saturday morning run and walk groups offer:

  • Step-by-step camaraderie — whether your goal is 5 miles or 26.2
  • New scenery — our routes change monthly
  • On-course support — water and energy drinks are provided
  • Coffee and chat after — we love to support our local bakeries and bagel shops!

Come, get fit (or fitter), and make friends who’ll last a lifetime!
