Kansas City Saturday Morning Area Roads and Trails (KC SMART) Runners Club was established in May for 2020 as just a small run group but formally became a running club in December of 2021. We are a 501c(3) organization and the newest Kansas City member of the Road Runners Club of America. KC SMART Runners is a place where we believe in Runners helping Runners. We have members that are fast Boston qualifiers all the way to run walkers just getting started for the first time and everything in-between. We have people training for all the upcoming races at all different paces.

  • Membership will gain you access to the following benefits:
  • Free weekly group runs
  • Race discounts provided to the Club for upcoming races

  • Runner Recognition Program
  • Training programs designed for the beginner to get you to targeted races
  • Couch to Finish Line Training programs matched against partner races
  • Multiple Social events through the year
