A 5K Run/Walk & Nature Trail Trek

September 6, 2014

It's our fourth annual 5K Run/Walk at Powell Gardens! Savor the sights and sounds of nature as you follow the timed 5K course with views of the lake. After the race, enjoy garden-fresh snacks and all-day access to the Gardens and the Gardens Gone Wild exhibit. An optional non-competitive trail trek on the 3.25-mile Byron Shutz Nature Trail follows the 5K.

While you enjoy time together with friends and family, you'll also be supporting Powell Gardens' efforts to reach students who might not otherwise be able to experience Powell Gardens through our youth education programs. With your support, low-income children from around the Greater Kansas City metro will have the chance to learn about healthy lifestyles with all five senses in the Heartland Harvest Garden.

Help us share the Gardens' goodness by forming a team, raising additional funds or sponsoring the event. Together with your friends, family and co-workers you can make a difference by sharing the Gardens with those who need it most!
