KCPP 5k 2024 Details

Join KC Pet Project on Saturday, April 13th to participate in our annual KC Pet Project 5K! You’ll have the opportunity to run or walk to support the care of 16,000 pets that will come through our shelter this year, and do so while enjoying a beautiful race through Swope Park.

All registrants will receive a race bib and commemorative race medal. All registrants will have the opportunity to also receive a race t-shirt for an additional $6 purchase.

You can sign-up today for Kansas City’s new favorite 5K and support the 16,000 homeless, abandoned, and often injured pets that will arrive at KC Pet Project this year. 

Please note, while this event supports pets in our community, we ask that you leave your 4 legged friends at home (with the exception of service animals). We will have some shelter pets on the route of the race for our participants to see.
