Wilderness Run Race Description

In a typical year we would say, "the Wilderness Run is a challenging cross-country run. Participants will run through the village, around the fields, up and down hills, over logs, through the woods, across creeks, and more! Don’t think you can run? Don’t worry, walkers, you too can sign up for this fun, challenging course. All participants who complete the course will receive a commemorative Wilderness Run mug and Long sleeve T-shirts." However, this is not a typical year. Just like last year, Wilderness Run is going virtual! Racers are able to choose from our traditional 2 mile or 5 mile distances. Since we will not recognize top finishers this year, there is a bonus option to choose your own distance! We encourage racers to find a portion of over 120 miles or trails in our KC Parks system and run, jog or walk your desired distance. Racers will have from October 31st to November 14th to complete the race on their own. Prize (mug and long sleeve shirt) pick up will take place in person at KC Parks Community Centers. If you prefer that your prizes be mailed, please select the "Please Mail My Prizes" button at checkout.

Another great Wilderness Run!

2019 added some more technical single track trails (almost the entire first 4 miles. Some grueling hills with many leaf covered paths and unsure footing. I had a blast and as always....I love this mug.
