The Club

Calling all women runners and walkers! You're invited to join KC Express, a group for women who love to run and walk together.

Since 1982, our non-profit club has helped women find new friends, new races, better fitness, and active fun.  Join today!

When: Tues, Aug 3 at 6:30 pm

Where: Loose Park, 5200 Wornall Road, KCMO.  We’ll meet at the Park Shelter. There’s lots of parking around the park, but the entrance off Wornall Rd near 51st St is closest to the shelter.

 

 

Many members train for specific goals or events within the Sat Walk & Run Groups.  From time to time, we offer additional training opportunities as part of our mission to promote women’s health through fitness.  Our newest program is the KCE 5K Club, coming in fall 2021.

All of our training programs focus on building fitness gradually and safely, in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
