The Grandfather of all Kansas City Road Races is celebrating its 50th Anniversary on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023! We are thrilled to invite you to join us for this historic occasion, participating in our featured Half Marathon, 10K or 5K. We are honored that over the past 50 years, we have had thousands of runners from all of the country and the world join us in Conquering the Hill! We share this half-century mark with you, the incredible runners who have joined us year after year to celebrate running, giving back to the community, and keeping our tradition alive!
The Hospital Hill Run is "The Kansas City Running Tradition." All participants receive one of a kind swag, including a unique finisher's medal, participant bib and a Commemorative 50th Anniversary Jacket. In addition, finishers receive finish line food and drink, on course entertainment, a great post-race party and much more!
For those wanting to share in the tradition, but might not be able to attend in person, we offer the Hospital Hill Run Virtual Race option for all three distances. Our hope is that you can experience everything this event has to offer in person. However, we understand that sometimes participating in person is not possible, but you still want to be a part of the event and receive our unique swag. Continuing to offer our virtual option is our way of helping you share in the joy virtually!
Mark your calendar for the 50th Annual Hospital Hill Run...the oldest road race in Kansas City and one of the oldest half marathons in the country. We are planning some exciting things for our 50th and you don't want to miss it!! Remember, you too can experience the "Thrill of the Hill."
