The Kansas City Chiefs and Arrowhead Events, the club's special events arm, are hosting the sixth-annual Arrowhead 5K at Arrowhead Stadium at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 29. For the third 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.
Registration is now open at www.chiefs.com/arrowhead5k with two early registration discount periods available. Early-bird registration, which is open now through Tuesday, May 1 is $35 for the general public and $30 for Chiefs Season Ticket Members. Pre-event registration will last from Wednesday, May 2 through Thursday, June 28 and is $40 for the general public and $35 for Season Ticket Members. If space allows, race day registration will be $45 for all participants.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Cornerstones of Care, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the safety and health of children and families. It provides education, mental and behavioral health, foster care and adoption, youth and family support, and community trainings in Kansas, Missouri and beyond.
Celebrating its sixth year in 2018, 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.
The 2017 Arrowhead 5K presented by Dick's Sporting Goods was held on June 16, 2017. Participants ran a course around Arrowhead Stadium, through the Hall of Honor, and finished on the 50 yard line under the stadium lights.
