Blue Devil 5K set for May 5


The annual Blue Devil 5k Fun Run/Walk and Kids Trot will be held Saturday, May 5, at Kansas City Kansas Community College.

The 5k Fun Run/Walk will start at 8 a.m. at the Wellness & Fitness Center on the east side of the KCKCC campus at 7250 State Avenue.

In addition to the 5k Run, there will be a Kids Trot (11 and under) at 9 a.m. and awards presentation at 9:30 a.m.

The entry fee is $30 for adults and $7 for kids and includes a 2012 Blue Devil 5k T-shirt, goodie bag, entry for prizes and an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast provided by Chris Cakes. The event is a fund-raiser to help improve the walking/running path on the college campus.

“By participating, we’ll be closer to our goal of having mile markers, walking and running route maps and possibly some fitness equipment along the trail for community members,” said Joe Mundt of the Wellness & Fitness staff.

Advanced registration can be made at the Wellness Center, by phone to 913-288-7370 or on-lie to
