Get Outta Your Rut and Run! - Join us for a most unusual 5K and 1K Fun Run experience. The Westward Ho! 5K cross-country-style course runs on a segment of the historic Oregon-California Trail (click), the Wesley Nature Trail, and mowed pathways with scenic vistas from one of the highest points in Douglas County. The 1K Family Fun Run will immediately follow the finish of the 5K and is FREE, no registration required. Family/youth/jogging stroller friendly, run/walked on an improved surface – the Wesley Nature Trail.  

Both events are dog friendly (leashed) and are easily accessed from Hwy 40, just west of K-10 on the West side of Lawrence, on the FUMC West Campus grounds. Paved parking, indoor restrooms and warming areas. 5K course is very spectator-friendly with many places to watch your runners go by!

Family Promise of Lawrence (click) is benefited by Westward Ho!

Registration includes $10 GIFT CERTIFICATE towards shoes at Ad Astra Running!
First 80 registrants receive a FREE emblazoned Westward Ho! Cowbell.
