Rexy Run 5K/10K/One Mile Family Walk


The 3rd Annual Rexy Run is scheduled for 8 AM on Saturday, August 25, 2018.  This year we are pleased to announce that in conjunction with the Kansas City 100K Challenge, we will be offering a NEW 10K as well as our 5K.  Both events will begin at the picturesque Broken Arrow Park in southeast Lawrence and will wind through the Baker Wetlands on a combination of paved concrete trails and fine gravel trails. As you pass through the Baker Wetlands, you will see several ponds and native grasslands.  There are a few small rolling hills to keep the course interesting, but the hills and course are easily navigated with a stroller if you wish to bring your children.  Since the weather in Kansas in August can be quite warm, there will be plenty of  aid stations on the course. The One Mile Family Walk will start shortly after the 5K and 10K.   At the completion of the 5K and 10K, we will be offering a free kids run with age appropriate distances. 


Top Seven reasons you should run the Rexy Run:

7. We offer an event for all abilities – not up to running a 5K or 10K?  Try the family friendly 1 mile walk along our Angel Avenue and Warrior Way.  The entire family can participate in this free 1 mile walk.

6. Participants in ALL events will receive a participation award.

5. We will have age group awards for the 5K and 10K races.

4. Great food after the event. 

3. The park has great playground equipment to keep the kids entertained. 

2. We have a fun, family friendly event.

And the #1 reason to participate: All proceeds stay in the area and benefit families with children who have cancer.  We help offset the extra expenses those families have that are not covered by health insurance.
