Westward Ho! 5K & Fun Run

Get Outta Your Rut and Run! – Join us for a most unusual 5K and 1K Fun Run experience. The Westward Ho! 5K cross-country-style course runs on a segment of the historic Oregon-California Trail (click), the Wesley Nature Trail, and mowed pathways with scenic vistas from one of the highest points in Douglas County. The 1K Family Fun Run will immediately follow the finish of the 5K and is FREE, no registration required. Family/youth/jogging stroller friendly, run/walked on an improved surface – the Wesley Nature Trail.

The 1K event is dog friendly (leashed), but sorry, no dogs in the 5K. Events are easily accessed from Hwy 40, just west of K-10 on the West side of Lawrence, on the FUMC West Campus grounds. Paved parking, indoor restrooms and warming areas. 5K course is very spectator-friendly with many places to watch your runners go by!

Family Promise of Lawrence (click) is benefited by Westward Ho!
