Park Trot – Family 5k
There is no better way to spend a Saturday morning than participating in a FREE 5K with my family and good friends.
The City of Independence, MO organizes the Bass Pro Park Trot; a 5k race the city and area businesses sponsor. The event is FREE to all registrants and you can even get a “Couch to 5k” program online! Which is also a great way to get the city out and moving! This is the 4th year my family has participated and from my estimate 2018 had the biggest turnout since we started in 2015. Way to go independence!
Independence 5K Run/Walk aims to promote increased use and access of the City’s parks and trails. The Run/Walk will take place at Waterfall Park, south of Bass Pro Shop. We hope families will enjoy the event and want to spend more time visiting the many parks and trails Independence has to offer! http://www.independenceparktrot.com/
I ran with my 6 year old son, Kobe. This was his 2nd 5k of the year and his 6th 5k total. He had a great race finishing in 28:01. Kailee my 8 year old also completed the race. She woke up not feeling well but decided to still walk to race with family and friends. I was proud of her for participating even though she wasn’t feeling great. This was her 8th 5k. Way to go Kailee and Kobe.
Kash, my 3 year old, completed the kids run .5 miles as well that day. I was excited to see so many kids running.
It’s a great way to spend a day celebrating your healthy choices, recommitting to making healthy choices and enjoying running into friends in the community, teachers, local business owners and making new friends all encouraging each other. The park trot is one of our favorite races because you never know who you might see on the course.
