Coach John Chavez never knew a stranger. Whether officiating for the Olympics or cheering on his cross country team, his enthusiasm was contagious to all. To commemorate and honor him, a first annual 5K run and 2 mile walk will be conducted in his name at Krug Park. If you cannot participate, please feel free to donate or volunteer! All proceeds from the event will be donated to Coaches vs. Cancer.
Packet Pickup

Packet Pickup will be at the StoneyCreek Inn, 1201 North Woodbine Road, St. Joseph, MO 64506 on 16 May 2014. Packet Pickup times will be from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Pony Express Room. The Pony Express room is on the main level and close to the front desk.

Starting Point

Start will be at the top of Krug Park. Be sure to tell any spectators to show up early, as portions of the course will be on and crossing the street around Krug Park. We would like to have as little traffic on the street as possible during the race. We do not intend on closing any streets for the race.Course map can be found at:


The first 200 sign-ups for the race will receive a t-shirt and finishers medal. Any sign ups after the first 200 will not be guaranteed a t-shirt.

For every $75.00 donated, you will receive two free race entries!! The Two Mile Walk will NOT be chip timed. Walkers will begin the event immediately after the 5k begins. All walkers will need to keep track of their own times if they desire to know what their finish times are.

Online registration will close on May 13. Registration at packet pickup will be $25 for BOTH events, and you will not be guaranteed a t-shirt. There will be limited race day registration. If you register on race day, you will NOT be chip timed for either event! Regrettably, due to narrow trails on some of the course, dogs will not be allowed in this race.Be sure to stick around after the race and watch Matthew May out of Kansas City perform on the Krug Bowl stage! Matt is a solo act who plays folk, folk rock, rock, and country. He is incredibly talented!
