Looking for a fun way to give back with your family? Join Autism Society - The Heartland for our 4th annual 5K/1K Fun Run May 1, 2021 by attending in-person or virtually! This event gives participants the opportunity to run or walk a 5k or 1k course at Worlds of Fun, or your own path. In-person runners will take their mark as they proceed through and around Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun, giving participants exclusive access and viewpoints of the park and their favorite attractions. This Kansas City 5K begins the first heat at 8:00 a.m. followed by the 1K at 8:15 a.m., before the park opens to the public. All registered 5K participants will receive a t-shirt, finisher’s medal, and be chip timed. All registered 1K participants will receive a t-shirt.

The first 300 full-price 5K participants who register will receive a FREE Worlds of Fun ticket to use after the race and before September 6, 2021. This FREE Worlds of Fun ticket does not include Oceans of Fun. Participants will still be required to pay for parking when redeeming their FREE ticket. 5K fees are $40; 1K fees are $25.

Worlds of Fun states that the 5K race with the Autism Society - The Heartland has become one of their favorite community events. While they were disappointed they didn’t get to play host to all the runners during the 2020 event, they will continue to support Autism Society - The Heartland and all the work we do in the community. We all look forward to the return of this event in 2021, bigger and better than ever!

Special pricing for the 5k and 1k is available to Autism Society - The Heartland families with PAID ASH Memberships. Please contact our office (913-706-0042) to get the special discount codes!

This race will benefit the lives of all affected by autism in Kansas and Missouri.
