About This Race

The average turkey takes roughly four hours to cook in the oven. While you're waiting, come on out to Kansas City's fastest growing Thanksgiving Day race! Come run or walk our 5K or try out the 10K! There's no better family tradition than to kick off Thanksgiving morning with a scenic trot down beautiful Ward Parkway at the Ward Parkway Thanksgiving Day Walk/Run (...plus it doesn't hurt to make extra room for that 2nd slice of pie). Speaking of dessert, each participant gets both a long sleeve race shirt AND a 6 inch pumpkin pie!
