KC Express is a group for women who love to run or walk together. After many years and many miles, we’ve found the perfect mix of fitness, fun, and community service.
We coordinate a variety of member events throughout the year:
Free group runs and walks every week
A healthy happy hour each month
Many members train for specific events within the Sat Walk & Run Groups. We also host the 5K Club Training Program in the fall, and assist with the AdventHealth Women’s Training Team in the spring. In addition, our Coach, Helen Wilms, offers individualized training plans if you need help with a goal event.
Sometimes we get together just to visit or try new activities. Last year we had an ice cream social, a run/walk plus beer party, a cookie-baking contest, tried a bungee fitness class, participated in a cross-country virtual relay, and had several KCE Book Club discussions. Our creative leaders are always thinking of activities to have fun and bring us together.
When we’re not on the road, we’re giving back. We work hard to promote women’s fitness and to create a supportive running/walking community for women of all ages and abilities.
We volunteer for activities beyond running and walking as well. In 2021 we had group volunteer sessions at Harvesters, Scraps KC, and collected 1500 packages of corn bread mix for Operation Breakthrough!
Mother’s Day 5K
Our signature event is the annual Mother’s Day 5K, now in its 18th year.
Register online or mail in the membership form. Dues are $25 per year.
