March 24 Update: The Autism Society of the Heartland’s 3rd Annual 5K/1K Fun Run at Worlds of Fun has been postponed. We are currently working together to reschedule, and we hope to announce our new date in a few weeks. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on the course soon!
Worlds of Fun will host a 5K/1K Fun Run with the Autism Society of the Heartland on Saturday, May 2. This is the second year the park has hosted this community event, and all proceeds will benefit the lives of those affected by autism in Missouri and Kansas.
Runners will take their mark as they proceed through and around Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun, giving participants exclusive access and viewpoints of the park and their favorite attractions. This Kansas City 5K begins at 8:00 a.m. followed by the 1K at 8:15 a.m., before the park opens to the public. All registered participants will receive a t-shirt, finisher’s medal and be chip timed. All registered 1K participants will receive a t-shirt.
