Park2Park Fun Run Fundraiser ~ September 29th


There are plenty of fundraising runs out there so why is this one any different? It’s unique because Roeland Park is a tiny city, only 1.6 square miles and oftentimes it gets mistaken for our neighboring city to the West or people think we’re mispronouncing Overland Park. Yet, within our city limits sit 7 parks and these parks are a major part of what draw neighbors out to play and make new friends. Even in a city this geographically small, it can seem large when you don’t know anyone so these green spaces are vital to drawing the community closer.

Everybody thinks they live in a great city, but the parks represent just seven reasons why Roeland Park is an amazing place to live. We want you to enjoy our city as much as us which is why we invite you to run our streets, see our parks and be a part of our community.

Two distance options are available, sign up for the 7 Miles, 7 Parks and run past all the parks. This choice is perfect if you’re training for the Kansas City Marathon and you want to check your pace time. There is also the 5 Park 5K – you still get to see most of the parks for half the distance! Youth 10 and under are invited to our Green Space Race + Scavenger Hunt. Other activities include Yoga, Art, Live Music!

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are available. Visit us on Facebook or contact us via email at Race Route (PDF)
