Welcome to a true Kansas City tradition! We are honored to be a part of Kansas City's Memorial Day holiday for more than a quarter century. We hope the best is yet to come! On behalf of the Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City ( biaks.org ) we thank all the supporters through the years as participants, sponsors, volunteers and spectators. We simply could not have a successful event without you! Your support contributes to providing vital programs through the Brain Injury Association to brain injury survivors, their loved ones and the general community.

In addition to our well known 8K event, which takes participants up Ward Parkway, we offer the popular 5K. We are also excited to bring back a 1 mile benefit Walk for Thought, which will take place beginning in the Loose Park Rose Garden area. We've had requests through recent years to include a shorter more manageable walk and we are looking forward to its return!
Bringing back... DISCOUNTS! We continue to receive a wonderful response to our Military and Youth Discounts, so we’ll continue to offer them. Register here. Click Here.Click here for Race Results & Race Photos from 2012.
Proceeds from the Amy Thompson Run for Brain Injury benefit the Brain Injury Association of Kansas and Greater Kansas City ( www.biaks.org ). They in turn, provide vital programs offering resources, support and education for survivors, loved ones and professionals in our community. Since its inception the run has raised more than $2 million to help all people with brain injury and the professionals who treat them.
Loose Park is where it all takes place. The run includes an 8K, a 5K run/walk, and 1 mile untimed benefit Walk for thought, finishing out the day with the ever popular Kiddie Dash. The 8K and 5 K Courses are certified and chip timed. Enjoy, music, food and drink as you participate in a run that remains a Kansas City Memorial Day tradition.
So register early and we look forward to seeing you and your family Memorial Day at Loose Park!
