Come run with us for our 5th Year on Saturday March 27, 2021! 

We have altered the half marathon race course in 2021 by taking out the last hill at the finish, the loop around the hospital (will be using the flat walking trail), the Seaport area hills (miles 3-5) but still featuring a scenic course through historic downtown Liberty and William Jewell College! Come run in the fastest growing race in Kansas City for the Liberty Hospital Half Marathon/Jewell 5K Presented by Hy-Vee! All Half Marathon and 5K participants will enjoy a scenic race course starting and ending at William Jewell College and going through downtown Liberty. Plus, load up with the following swag: stunning large finisher medals, free race photos, very soft uni-sex long sleeve shirt for half marathoners and very soft uni-sex short sleeve tech shirt for 5K, post-race refreshments, 3Halves Craft beer, chip timing, NEW- Personalized Bibs and discounts/giveaways from our sponsors!


Your entry fee supports community LiveWell grants distributed by the Liberty Hospital Foundation. Read More

We have recruited the SmartPacing Team managed by the Runners Edge Training Program for this year’s race. Instead of running an even pace for each mile, they will use a SmartPace strategy that adjusts the pace based on the hills to help you run “even effort” and start out conservatively to help you run more efficiently.
