    The Tomstrong 5K was created in 2016 after Tom Babb  suffered a life altering accident while surfing in Hawaii. After months of planning and the effort of hundreds of volunteers, an annual race to raise money for the University of Kansas' Academic and Achievement Access Center (AAAC). This money is used to create scholarships and to enhance Accessibility on the University campus.​

    After the 3rd annual race, over $100,000 has been raised and 1,500 people have participated in this special event. Coming in Spring 2019, lace up your running shoes and come out to support The University of Kansas and the AAAC.

For the love of all that is good and moisture wicking...

Though we try to be accurate and on top of things... Race details can change when we aren't lookin. And once in a while we simply make a mistake.

ALWAYS visit the race's website for the most complete and accurate race information.
