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!

Ongoing Events

Run

When: March– Saturdays at 7 am
Where: Messenger Coffee, 1624 Grand Blvd., KCMO

Contact Sat Run Coordinator Amy Medina for details.

Walk

When: March– Saturdays at 7:30 am
Where: Meadowbrook Park, 9101 Nall Ave, Prairie Village, KS 66207
(Enter at 92nd Terrace and Nall Avenue and park by the coffee shop which now has outdoor heaters.)

March   2

Join us for the KCE version of the “Great British Bake-Off” with shortbread cookies. Show your baking skills in one of three categories: technical challenge (best basic recipe), signature bake (individual spin), or show stopper (fancy!)  Have a cup of tea or coffee while “judging”.  Stay to socialize if you’re comfortable, or just drop off your cookies and grab a to-go beverage.  Cookies will be donated to first responders or food pantries.

When: Tuesday, March 2 at 7 pm
Where: Pilgrim Coffee House, 12643 Metcalf, Overland Park

Whether your goal is to run or walk your first 5K, 10K, or half marathon–or to improve your time in any distance–KCE has a training program for you.

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

WIN for KC Awards Celebration

KCE is again a sponsor of this wonderful annual event to honor girls and women in our community for their contributions and achievements in sports. The 2021 celebration will not be an in-person event, but will be televised on 38 the Spot KMCI on Saturday, February 13th at 7pm.

Instead of a sponsorship table at a luncheon, KCE will receive a “Watch Party Pack” for 6. This consists of 2 bottles of wine OR a case of local beer OR a cocktail kit (one bottle of spirits, mixers, and garnishes), pub snacks, 6 adult lunchables, a branded WIN for KC cooler, and bar tools.

The KCE board will raffle this party pack to one lucky member to share as they please, since gathering outside of our bubbles is not wise right now. Raffle tickets are $5 each; $20 for 5 chances. All money collected will be donated to WIN for KC for scholarships to their summer camps for girls.

Send your raffle money to our treasurer, Patti Farmar. Please email Patti at kcexpresstreasurer@gmail.com for her address. You must purchase raffle tickets by Jan. 30.

If you’ve not had an opportunity to attend the luncheon in the past, please do consider watching the presentation on 2/13. The stories of the award winners will warm your heart and might bring a tear to your eye.
