5K Home Run supporting Family Promise of Lawrence

Mon May 27, 2024 Lawrence, KS 66044 US Directions



This race is perfect for seasoned racers, walkers and those who've never run or even walked 3.1 miles. Grab your strollers and favorite pets on a leash -- they're welcome, too! We'll also have bounce houses and other free kids' activities on site.

Virtual participants: You can even track your mileage over the week to total a 5K. (How many trips from the couch to the fridge would you need?) 

All participants receive a race T-shirt. Medals will be awarded for the top in-person male and female overall and master’s (40+) finishers, and the top 3 male and female finishers in these age groups: 10 & under, 11-15, 16-20, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70 and 70+. Virtual participants can submit their race photos to be recognized in a variety of creative categories.

Teams of four or more people can register to receive a $5 discount per person for either the in-person or virtual event. Teams can be a mix of in-person and virtual participants. The largest youth team (18 and under) will win free meals from Hawaiian Bros!
