Kansas Half-Marathon & 5k

Kansas Half-Marathon & 5k is the official half-marathon of Kansas and takes place on November 5, 2023. 

Run with a Purpose

Since its inception, the Kansas Half Marathon has helped offset costs and increase access to affordable health care services for those that are uninsured/underserved in Douglas County. We kindly invite you to partner with us for this annual signature event. Together, we can engage all people, regardless of fitness level, to run with a purpose; supporting health care for all.

Heartland Community Health Center is a local safety net health care provider committed to expanding health care access for all and providing that access in an integrated, accessible, patient-centered model with a focus on improving the quality of life for our patients in Douglas County and neighboring communities
