Saturday Group Run | 10 Miles

  • Shawnee Mission Park (Marina Parking Lot) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Happy Memorial Day, Roadrunners! Enjoy the freedom of running through beautiful Shawnee Mission Park. Thank YOU to those who have died serving this country to give us this freedom.


Note: Although the start is set for 6:30 AM, be prepared for a slight delay. We’re filming footage for a cool Roadrunner’s of Kansas City video that will be featured on this site. Here are some tips on how you can look your RRKC best:

  • If you’ve got it, wear your RRKC gear. We want Miles to be front and center. 

  • If you don’t have any RRKC gear, choose clothing with subtle branding in the following colors: royal blue, turquoise, red/orange, grey.

  • Be yourself. It’s what makes our group awesome!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

Hill Repeats at Nall Hill

No we aren’t meeting in the desert, but I wanted to share this picture because the hills in the Moab marathon made me swear to never curse the hills in KC again :) Best way to feel no hill? Practice running them!

Coach Amy will be out of town for this session but do NOT worry your heads! JJ is filling in and each athlete will receive their individual workout in an email. Meet at our Nall hill.

Saturday Group Run

A 14-mile course (run 2-14) starting at CoachAmyPT clinic. Notice the start time change to 7:30AM. Due to potential ice patches, we need the light. Map.

SWAP meet this Saturday. Grab or donate Run STUFF. I have collected a few items over the years and have a few donations. Feel free to bring run gear you don’t use anymore to trade or grab some that you need! It’s a FREE for all. Anything left at the end of the group run will be donated to charity :)

Coach Amy says, “Start practicing race nutrition now! Nutrition is important for runs over 90 minutes. Start taking it in 30 min. into the run.”

KS winter weather is unpredictable. See our group run cancellation policy.
