Official Website


Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and guidelines now in place for the State of Kansas and Shawnee County, the 2020 Strollin' for the Colon 5K Run/Walk will be postponed

The Strollin' for the Colon 5K Run/Walk's original date was March 28, 2020. We are still determining the best date in coordination with our sponsors (July 11th is NOT the actual event date). Thank you for your understanding during this unexpected change. We care about the health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and the Topeka community. We will continue to update you as plans are made for a new race date and your options for participation.

If you have any questions please email Taylor at [email protected]

KMC Strollin' for the Colon 5K Run/Walk aims to raise awareness about colorectal cancer and the importance of colon cancer screenings. This will be a unique race - runners will begin and finish the race through our GIANT SUPER INFLATABLE COLON - an inflatable colon tunnel, 10 feet tall, 13 feet wide, and 20 feet long. 

Adults who are participating in this event with a child under the age of 10 are signing the waiver on behalf of themselves and the child under the age of 10 participating with them, and will be considered as one registration, not two. Any participant under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian register and sign a waiver for them for the event they are participating in. The parent or guardian is also strongly encouraged to register them self and participate with the under age participant in the event they are participating in.

Registered participants will receive a 2020 event shirt. 2019 event shirts will be available to purchase for a minimum $5 suggested donation the day of the event (cash or check only - limited sizes available).

The MacLennan Park Trails are located in northwest Topeka along the hills overlooking the Kansas River. Trails are natural surface. Trailhead access and parking lots may be found on the south side of the park on 6th Street west of Fairlawn Road.
