The Kansas City Chiefs and Arrowhead Events, the club’s special events arm, are hosting the seventh-annual Arrowhead 5K at Arrowhead Stadium on Friday, May 31st. For the fourth year in a row, event participants will finish on the 50-yard line, under the bright lights of Arrowhead.
Runners and walkers will navigate their way through the parking lots around Arrowhead and Kauffman Stadiums before the race route will take them inside Arrowhead to run through the concourse and Hall of Honor presented by Spectrum.
Upon check-in, race participants will receive a 2018 Arrowhead 5K t-shirt with their race packet. When participants are finished, they will enjoy a post-race celebration on the field which will include appearances by Chiefs Cheerleaders, KC Wolf and special Chiefs guests. The race will be timed for competitors, and the top overall and age group winners will receive Chiefs tickets for their performances.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Cornerstones of Care, a nonprofit organization with the mission to provide an array of quality preventative treatment and support services for children and their families, helping them to achieve health, happiness, confidence, competence and self-sufficiency.
Celebrating its seventh year in 2019, the Arrowhead 5K run/walk is designed to give fans the opportunity to experience a run/walk event that offers something no other race event in Kansas City offers – the chance for runners to race inside Arrowhead Stadium and finish under the lights on the 50-yard line. Whether you run or walk, come in first or just run for fun, the Arrowhead 5K is designed for everyone to enjoy.
