At Your Home

Looking for a new outdoor activity to complete during this time of social distancing? Maybe your annual 5k was cancelled this year? Then dust off those running shoes, connect with a friend or family member, hit up your favorite trail, and join us for a Virtual 5k! The 5k can be completed at your home and at your own pace. Walk, bike, or run it! The kickoff date is Monday, October 26th and you will have until the end of the day on Sunday, November 22nd to complete your 3.11 miles. 

For a $10 fee, all participants will receive a commemorative medal after the 5k's completion. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Grandma's Pantry, Rockhurst University’s on-campus free-will food pantry for students, faculty and staff companions. 

Register HERE. Registration is active until the final day!

All participants, SHARE with us how or where you completed your miles HERE! And, make sure to tag Rockhurst University in your race day photos on social media.

Rockhurst community, we invite you to participate in a shoe drive benefitting the emergency assistance clothing closet at Morning Glory Ministries in Downtown Kansas City, MO. Donations of boots or any style of shoes are accepted. The blue donation bin is located in the Massman Hall Lobby, outside of the front staircase. Please drop by your donations before November 20th!
