Description

Are you ready for some mysterious, physical activity? Join KC Crew at the Elmwood Cemetery for 2017 Graveyard 5K on Saturday, October 7th. Let's help raise some money for the maintenance of the cemetery!

This race takes place entirely within Elmwood Cemetery, where many influential Kansas Citians call their final resting place.

Some fun facts about Elmwood Cemetery include:
๐ŸŽƒ Keep an eye out for the headstone of Americus McKim, the owner of KC's first professional baseball team, The Kansas City Unions. Without him, we wouldn't be able to cheer on the Royals today!
๐ŸŽƒ Simeon Brooks Armour, the founding member of Armour and Company Meat Packing, is buried in the Armour Family plot in Elmwood. Armour Boulevard is named after Simeon and his family.
๐ŸŽƒ The Elmwood Cemetery is the second oldest cemetery in Kansas City.
๐ŸŽƒ It's also the final resting place of 766 soldiers who fought in the Civil War on both sides.

Do you have what it takes to walk, or run with the dead? ๐Ÿ‘ป
