Happy Thanksgiving from the Pilgrim Center! We had so much fun yesterday at packet pick up and gathering for our 5K in Hyde Park today.

Pilgrim Run 5K

The Pilgrim Run is changing. This year, we are crossing out the word "Pilgrim" in the name of our 5K fun run. Why?

We wanted to let you know that this is the last year our annual fundraising 5K on Thanksgiving Day will be called the “Pilgrim Run”.

Why have we decided to change it?

The word “pilgrim” has a rich history, meaning an individual who is on a journey toward spiritual enlightenment, one that often takes the form of a physical journey to a holy place. When the Pilgrim Center was incorporated in 1997, one of its founding purposes was to provide the Pilgrim Chapel as a public sanctuary for people of all beliefs or non-beliefs on their journeys toward peace. And so it took its name from the chapel. At the Pilgrim Center, we work to be inclusive, and one of our goals is to advocate for racial and social equity for all persons.

And so, as an organization with a history and mission of creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all, we no longer feel it is appropriate to produce a “Pilgrim” Run on Thanksgiving Day. Although it was never our intention to do so, we recognize and accept ownership that when we celebrate “pilgrims” on Thanksgiving, we are perpetuating a holiday mythology that is disrespectful of and ignorant to the suffering caused by America’s systemic oppression of indigenous people. It is important to us to acknowledge this as well as take action toward changing the name of the event.

So what is the new name?

Over the next few months, we look forward to inviting you, representatives of our local tribes, and the rest of our community, to engage in conversations about how we came to this decision and what the new name will be!

Follow us or visit www.thelastpilgrimrun.org to stay updated on this process.

The Pilgrim Run 5K is on Thursday November 25, 2021. It includes the following events: 5K, Children's Dash, 5K Virtual, and Children's Dash Virtual.

Our sponsors are something else! This year many donated their registrations to give to the Cornerstones of Care Ozanam Running Club, a club that encourages boys in their residential facility to run for stress relief, physical fitness, and goal-setting practice.

This year some of the boys hit their best 5K times on the Pilgrim Run, one of them even getting as low as 22:13. Run, Pilgrims!

Our Story

This is the ninth year of our exciting 5K run (and walk) on Thanksgiving morning in Midtown Kansas City! This run was created by Hyde Park residents who were responding to several issues: 1) they were tired of traveling away from Hyde Park to participate in a Fun Run 5K on Thanksgiving morning, 2) they were tired of the corporate scenery on many local Thanksgiving Day runs; 3) they knew the Pilgrim Center’s community programming needed financial support to keep providing safe, educational FREE fun for all; and 4) They wanted to run for charity, not for pie!

So, several residents volunteered their time and energy to organize the Pilgrim Run 5K to benefit the Pilgrim Center. Sponsors happily signed on, and a family tradition was born! These clever folks may have foreseen that almost a decade later, the Pilgrim Run would attract more than 1200 runners, volunteers, and spectators to Hyde Park each Thanksgiving Day. They may have known that folks would love the chance to establish a healthy family tradition on a day that in infamous for over-indulging. They may have realized that folks would LOVE dressing like turkeys to walk a few miles, in hopes of winning our Best Costume contest. But whatever they knew or maybe only hoped, their hard work in those first few years has grown the only KC Fun Run on Thanksgiving Day that supports a 501(c)(3) charity that KEEPS THAT MONEY IN MIDTOWN. Join us this year and fall in love yourself!
