Why time standards?  The Kansas City Spirit is all about focusing on a higher goal in order to persevere through life’s challenges. Time standards give many people something to aim for. As for those who have already achieved the time standards, hopefully the prize money will entice them to train even harder 🙂  Standards also encourage people to participate in other 5K’s (since you have to qualify), thus helping out many other charitable events in the community. The main reason though is to bring a prestigious event to an overlooked part of our city -the 18th & Vine neighborhood. This race is an opportunity to celebrate the history and culture of an underappreciated part of KC while breaking down very present racial and economic barriers.

Don’t hit the time standards?  Check out our charity entry option, The Paseo Milevolunteer, or spectate!  We’d love for you to be part of this community event!
