About the KC Temple Run
Established in 2011, the KC Temple Run is an annual 5K run made successful by its more than 2000 participants each year. Truckloads of food and thousands of hygiene and cleaning items have been donated by KC Temple Run attendees to various local charitable organizations including Hillcrest Hope (2016) and Valor Ranch (2019), and Amethyst Place (2021). This year, the KC Temple Run is partnering with Della Lamb, a local organization dedicated to empowering our neighbors to meet the challenges of education, employment, and self-sufficiency in an ever-changing world. Through their 4 core programs of Early Education, Refugee Services, Social Services, and Youth Services, Della Lamb is hoping to inspire a kinder and more welcoming Kansas City.
Members of the community look forward to this free event each spring. Running clubs, families of all ages, or simply those wanting to make a healthy choice and support a local charity find the KC Temple run to be a wonderful experience.
