This year marks the ten-year anniversary of the Pilgrim Run 5K, and we are so excited to celebrate with you! Sign up for our email list here: https://confirmsubscription.com/h/t/823742765E1B7D64 or like us on Instagram or Facebook @pilgrimrunkc to stay tuned for more details to come.

Of course it is also an unusual year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing. We have been continuously monitoring the number of cases in the metropolitan Kansas City area and the emergency orders from Mayor Lucas, and we have made the decision to shift the 2020 Pilgrim Run to an ENTIRELY VIRTUAL EVENT.

The first 800 participants to register will receive a finishers medal!

That means you can run your 5K wherever and whenever you want! We will still mark the course and stream live on Thanksgiving Day, but you can upload your time and finish photo whenever you've completed your race. And of course ALL registrants will receive a customized bib, long-sleeve t-shirt, and finisher medal, featuring our new logo, celebrating ten years of the Pilgrim Run. Run Pilgrim!

Jump start your Thanksgiving morning with a fun 5K walk or run through historic Hyde Park in midtown Kansas City. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Community Programs of the Pilgrim Center. Although this year is an ALL VIRTUAL event, the start and finish (both southbound) for the usual course is just to the north of the Pilgrim Chapel at 38th Street and Gillham Road.
• The course will take the runners and walkers through Hyde Park, Gillham Park and the Hyde Park neighborhood.
• When the Pilgrim Run is not all virtual, all 5K participants (runners & walkers) are chip timed.
• The course has been certified by the USATF.

5K runners and walkers will receive a long sleeve color T-shirt (shirts not guaranteed if registering after Nov. 15).
Age Groups: 9 & Under, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-84, 85+.
When the Pilgrim Run is a live event, the Children's Dash for kids 8 & Under is held at the conclusion of the 5K run and walk. Divisions are: 4 & Under, 5-6, and 7-8. The younger two divisions will run 100 yards and the older division will run 200 yards. Dash participants will receive a T-shirt (shirts will not be guaranteed if registration is after Nov. 15). Ribbons will be awarded to all finishers.
Parking is available at Notre Dame de Sion Grade School –3823 Locust St. Access to this parking lot will close at 8:45 a.m. and exit will not be opened until 9:30 a.m. since this lot is within the race course.
