Hospital Hill Run

June 6, 2020 Kansas City, MO US 64108 Directions
2020 Hospital Hill Run will be completely Virtual

To Our Participants & the entire Hospital Hill Run Community:

You train hard, and the excitement and tradition of the Hospital Hill Run each year is one we all eagerly anticipate. So it is with heavy hearts that I, along with the Board of Directors of the Hospital Hill Run, Inc., have made the very difficult decision to transition this year’s event to an all-virtual race. While we prefer an on-site race, we must recognize the severity and uncertainty of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that continues to be reinforced by the CDC, Department of Health, local authorities, and our medical director.

We are aware that many of you have either started or continue to train, and you’re truly looking forward to the tradition of the Hospital Hill Run this year. We understand that it is disappointing, however, your safety is our top priority.  The Hospital Hill Run Foundation’s mission focuses on health and wellness, and we take everyone’s health and wellness very seriously. We are confident that this is the right decision to keep our athletes, staff, volunteers, medical professionals, security personnel, spectators, and community safe.

Moving forward, all registered runners will automatically be enrolled in our 2020 Hospital Hill Virtual Run, so no action is required by you. Our virtual run will provide an opportunity for you to get outside and run as well as share your experience with our running community.

Virtual runners will receive a Hospital Hill Run Charlie Hustle Race tee, along with a race medal and race bib. And, as a special thanks for supporting the 47th Annual Hospital Hill Run, we are offering 20% off your next year’s entry. We will supply a code to be used for our 2021 registration.

For 47 years, we have produced the grandfather of all Kansas City Road Races. As a 501(c)(3), the Hospital Hill Run Foundation has supported health and fitness initiatives throughout the Kansas City community, specifically Kansas City Missouri Public Schools and Strive for Life, along with other local charities. We are passionate about continuing this tradition of meaningful contributions to the health and fitness of Kansas Citians. Your entry fee goes directly toward the cost of the medals, t-shirts, other expenses that have already been paid, along with other logistical expenses that are associated with supporting the 47th Annual Hospital Hill Run.

We once again thank you for your patience and understanding and will be sure to keep you updated through our website, via email, and on our social media channels. Our running community is loyal and strong, and by supporting each other and working together, we WILL get through this. We look forward to our 2021 event to experience the Thrill of the Hill!

We've Gone Virtual in 2020!

With the health and safety of all participants at the forefront of our minds during the coronavirus, we've decided to transition our June 6, 2020 race to a virtual race. We believe this is the best solution for runners and the community at large, and we look forward to promoting movement through running during this difficult time. 

Virtual runners will receive a Hospital Hill Run Charlie Hustle Race tee, along with a race medal and race bib. And, as a special thanks for supporting the 47th Annual Hospital Hill Run, we are offering20% off your next year’s entry. We will supply a code to be used for our 2021 registration.

How to Participate

  1. You can run or walk your distance on roads, tracks, treadmills, anywhere! You will just need to complete your run by July 1st, 2020.
  2. After you’ve completed your run, submit your virtual results here so you can see how you stack up against other participants running your same distance. You can use any app to track your miles (garmin, mapmyrun, strava etc.)
  3. Lastly, join our Virtual Hospital Hill Run Facebook Group and submit your virtual run photos so our community can engage with each other!

Once you submit your results and photos to our Facebook Group, we will send you a digital finisher certificate to your email. We also will send out your SWAG packet in the mail once we receive the shirts and medals from our supplier. In addition, our operations team worked to create some virtual course options, which you can find here.

Look for fun challenges and contests to be announced! Please refer to this page for full information about the virtual race.

Have fun and we look forward to seeing your virtual run photos, videos and more!
