About the event
Scott was diagnosed in 2023 with Stage 4 Colon Cancer that has metastasized to the liver, abdominal wall, lungs, left hip and most recently, the skull and soft tissue around the right eye. Scott loves the running community in Kansas City and has always done what he can to improve it, from volunteering at races to just being a friendly face at group runs and sharing the BeardedRunner discount code. While enduring his chemo and radiation treatments, Scott continues to stay active and is on a quest to reach 300 lifetime races. The B.E.A.R.D. 5K/10K will be his 300th!!!
Join us as we honor Scott and celebrate the lives of all those affected by cancer. With its scenic 5K course and electrifying atmosphere, this event promises to be an unforgettable experience that combines passion, fitness, and memories that will stay with you long after the finish line.
