Day 5K

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!



Newest SWAG!

We’re known for having the cutest, most colorful race swag! Here’s our newly revised 2020 virtual MD5K shirt design and finishers charm. We tweaked the shirt artwork just a bit to reflect how we are all trying to stay connected to the important women in our lives.  And our springy colors and fun design are sure to cheer you up!

Flower Power!

When we started the MD5K sixteen years ago, we decided to use a daisy-type flower as our design theme. It seemed a good choice because daisies, like women, come in an infinite variety, and they’re all beautiful in their own way. For 2020, our artwork is once again by the talented Jane Smeltzer, who loves bold designs in exuberant colors. Here’s the new artwork!
