8th Annual Polar Barefoot Fun Run
When: Noon - January 1, 2012
Where: Roe Park, 10400 Roe Avenue, Overland Park Kansas
Distance: Half mile and one mile barefoot run (take your pick!). For those who want to go further, we will be running the bike trail or along the path on the grassy shoulder.
Entry Fee: FREE! (We will be accepting lightly worn clothes and coats plus new socks and cash donations for the Kansas City Rescue Mission.)
Start the year off right with a barefoot run! (For the less adventurous, "shod" runners are also welcome.) The weather could be mild or very cold (hey, this is Kansas City!). The Polar Bear Swim Club will have nothing on us as we continue our local tradition in the Heartland. Come be part of this annual event!
Hot chocolate will be provided.
Directions: From I-435, take the Roe Exit north, past Indian Creek Parkway and Suburban Lawn and Garden. Roe Park is the first left after crossing Indian Creek.
