  • Martini Mile
    On June 8, runners converge on Union Hill and the Martini Corner Entertainment District for a four-mile relay race through the streets of Kansas City. Divided into teams of four, each competitor carries a baton in their hand or mouth as they dash through a one-mile portion of the route before handing the stick off to the next teammate. Those who chart the best times will be recognized with post-race awards for the fastest men's, women's, co-ed, and corporate teams. After the race, the lure of live music emanates from nearby bars Velvet Dog and Martini Corner, where a post-race party welcomes runners to replenish with included drinks and socialize with fellow runners. Proceeds from the race will benefit Ozanam Guild, a 65-year-old institution that provides care and support for children and families in need. Since opening its doors in 1948, Ozanam Guild has helped more than 7,000 troubled children secure a better future through therapeutic care and academic assistance.

  • KC Crew
    It?s hard to make new friends in a park; but, thanks to KC Crew, friendships have been blossoming all over Roanoke Park, One Park Place, and Penn Valley Park. The secret to their success is rec leagues, in which players compete in softball, tennis, and sand volleyball, a beachy sport far preferable to speed eating shells. The organization provides umpires, a game schedule, and a $100 credit at a local bar awarded to the winning team. And after the sun goes down, the organization offers more in-depth studies of the area nightlife through bar crawls, themed to celebrate holidays such as St. Patrick?s Day or simulate a zombie apocalypse.

  • Drenched 5K - Kansas City
    During a race, many runners relish that moment when they come upon the volunteer handing out cups of water from the side of the course. For the Drenched 5K, there's no waiting for that fleeting relief?the entire course is equipped with watery obstacles such as sprinklers and oversized slip 'n' slides. The fun continues at the after-party, where participants can unwind on water slides and in foam stations. During a giant water fight, runners lob water balloons at each other to cover up any embarrassing dry spots they might have left. Even spectators can buy tickets to the post-race festivities, with proceeds from their purchases and race registrations going toward Kansas City?area charities.
