Royals Charities to host 5K run/walk at The K

TORONTO -- Royals Charities will host a 5K run/walk at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 7 beginning at 8 a.m. CT that will take participants around the field.

Fans can register online at Royals.com/run for a fee of $35, but the number of eligible participants will be capped off at 3,500.

Participants will receive prizes, including a Hy-Vee Infield voucher -- valued at $18 -- which can be redeemed for a ticket to a Royals game from Sept. 8-22. Further, each runner will receive a commemorative T-shirt, plus food and drinks at the conclusion of the race.

The top male and female finishers will be awarded prizes, as will the top three finishers in each age bracket. Awards can be collected at Gate D following the race.

Fundraising is available for teams, individuals and schools. Prizes will also be awarded for the most money raised by a team, which must consist of at least five individuals, as well as individual participants.
