Cliff Hanger Run

Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences is pleased to serve as Cliff Hanger Run's naming sponsor and host site. The race will start and finish on KCUMB's campus. Cliff Drive offers a beautiful wooded route for runners and walkers in distances of both 5K and 8K. After the race, join us at KCUMB  for a pancake and egg breakfast.

KCTC's goal at Cliff Hanger is to sponsor many youth runners through training programs and to provide a race experience for those that would otherwise not have the opportunity.  Consider sponsoring a child when you register to run!
