June 2013 Kansas City running races

Loose Park Pavilion, Kansas City, MO 
May 27 @ 8 am
A Memorial Day event, the Amy Thompson Run for Brain Injury will be held May 27, 2013 beginning at 8 am, marking its 26th year! You will have an option of the 8K or 5K run/walk course in Loose Park and surrounding neighborhoods.  In addition to these certified, chip-timed courses, there will be a 1 mile benefit walk and a Kiddie Dash. Enjoy food and music after the race. Proceeds from this event fund programs through the Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City. 

Bark N Blues is a family friendly day of great food, live music, and activities kicked off with a 5K and 1 mile dog walk. By participating in this event, you are helping the animal rescue cause. Foster homes for animals are a necessary part of preparing pets for good, loving homes. Caring for these animals is costly; Bark N Blues is a day of fun activities to help offset the costs animal foster homes face. Bring your dog and enjoy the race!

Support local charities by running or walking in the Jazz in the Woods 5K or 10K. Start your weekend and the Jazz in the Woods festival with a morning run through Corporate Woods. 

With personal knowledge of the financial and emotional burden of cancer, the Run 4 Ron foundation works to help those currently fighting against cancer - especially the uninsured, underinsured, and those using alternative treatments. Support this cause and enjoy the 5K!
Join us for a one-of-a-kind country experience. Run the Boots and Daisy Dukes 5K while your kids participate in the Lil' Critter's Fun Run! Both courses run through the picturesque Waterfall Park. As a participant you will receive a shirt, vintage trucker's hat, finisher's medal, free photos, chip timing, and awards for top finishers; for the kids - a shirt, medal, free pony rides, petting zoo, and face painting! 
A unique running/biking event, the Dirty Duo is a 6 mile race where teams alternate biking and running. At each mile, you will encounter a fun obstacle. To finish the race, you will crawl through a 40-foot mud pit! Kids ages 5-11 can participate in the Dirty Duo Jr. which is a similar course, but the distance is one mile.
Bring your family out to celebrate Father's Day by running or walking in the 5K event. Proceeds from the event go to three worthy causes - the Kevin Gray Family Education Fund, the University of Kansas Cancer Center, and the Greater Kansas City Sports Commission and Foundation. 
The inaugural DEA Fallen Heroes 5K run/walk supports the DEA Survivors Benefit fund for families of DEA employees and task force officers killed in the line of duty. Stay around after the race for awards, food, drinks, live DJ, and more.

Be a part of this annual event. The run/walk will start at Rockhurst High School. Project 5 for ALS is an organization dedicated to funding research for a cure for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). All proceeds go directly toward research and none toward administrative costs. Show your support and participate!
Making high school athletics safer is the focus of the SAF-K. Run or walk in the Spirit Race 5K to show your support of this cause. A portion of this year's proceeds will go to purchasing AED's for athletic trainers to have at all high school sporting events and practices.

Run/walk through a 2.5 mile course of 8 inflatable obstacles, slides and other fun challenges. For children 9 and under there will be a ½ mile mini course with 4 inflatable obstacles. Participants will receive a shirt, finisher's medal, and post race fun including photos, DJ, face painting, and more inflatables! Wave starts will begin at 7:30 am; the last wave will be at 1 pm.
