We’re going virtual!
The Mother’s Day 5K is Kansas City’s only race by women, for women!
This year marks “Sweet 16” for our much-loved event! Even though Covid-19 is keeping us all at a physical distance, we want to connect as much as possible. So, we’re making the 2020 Mother’s Day 5K a virtual run/walk. What does that mean for you?
- “Collector’s edition” t-shirt. You still get a custom t-shirt and finisher’s charm for participating. In fact, we’ve redesigned our 2020 shirt to reflect these crazy days of staying connected from a distance. (See the design in “News” below.)
- Lower race fees. Choose $16 for drive-through packet pick-up or $20 if you’d rather receive your packet by mail. Details here.
- Your own course. Choose a 3.1-mile course in your neighborhood, a park or even on a treadmill. Then run or walk it whenever you choose. It’s all on the honor system. There are no timing or age group awards – and no alarm clock either!
- Random giveaways. Instead of awards for times, we’ll randomly select names from among all entrants for gift certificates from Dick’s Sporting Goods.
- Selfies and stories. It’s still our goal to make the MD5K a fun event for women to share. Post selfies and stories from your run/walk on our Facebook page. We’ll have prizes for those, too!
Register HERE (coming soon!) and join us for the first ever Virtual Mother’s Day 5K!
