Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a charitable event?
Yes. This is a free, family-friendly event benefiting In As Much Ministries. Temple Run participants are invited (but not required) to bring items to the race to donate. A list of needed items is posted on the Race Charity page.

What if I don’t want to run or walk, can I still participate?
Yes, we'd love to have you sign up as a volunteer. From flipping pancakes, to helping with registration, to handing out water, to helping with t-shirts, there are many volunteer opportunities you can help with. Aren't able to volunteer? No worries. The KC Temple Run is a family event and you don't need to register to watch and/or cheer on the runners – just show up and enjoy being a part of this community event.

Where can I park?
See parking information

Can I bring a stroller?
Yes. Strollers are permitted, but please be considerate of other runners. We encourage those with strollers and jogging strollers to start further back, allowing the runners a clear path. Also, anyone on the course needs to be registered – this includes infants and children in strollers.

Will the course be blocked to vehicular traffic?
Yes. Roads will be blocked to all vehicles. There will be police officers and volunteers (wearing “Helping Hands” vests) at the beginning and end of the course.

What is the distance of the Kids Runs?
The children will run approximately 100 yards.

Can kids do all the runs: 5K, Family Run and the Kids 100 Yard Dash?
Yes, kids can participate in the 2K Walk or 5K Run, as well as the Kids 100 Yard Dash. Please register them for just one event, and then they can still participate in both.  

Are pets allowed?
No, unfortunately, pets are not allowed.

Will medals be awarded for top times? 
Awards will be given to the top three finishers in each age category, male and female. Categories include (14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+). All participants in the kids’ races will receive a prize. Runners must have timing chips for times to be recorded and ranked.

Are there any fees associated with this race?
While the race is completely free, if you would like a timing chip or t-shirt, there are small fees associated with it. The timing chip is $5, and the t-shirts vary from $12-$26.

 How can I buy a t-shirt? Will shirts be available to purchase on race-day?
Yes, shirts will be available on race-day, but in limited quantities and sizes. To guarantee your choice of shirt(s), be sure to pre-order them by May 5th, 2020. Anyone can order a shirt – running the race isn’t a requirement to purchase a shirt, however t-shirts will only be distributed the day of the race. If you will not be attending the race, you will need to make arrangements to have someone pick up your shirts. T-shirt sales sponsor this free event. Don't want a t-shirt but want to help support to the Temple Run? Donate now to ensure this not-for-profit race continues in the future.
