Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the 2017 CCVI Trolley Run! Plan now to join us Sunday, April 29, 2018 for the 30th annual Trolley Run.

The idea for this fundraiser was presented to the Friends of CCVI by the former Michael Forbes Restaurants, Inc., which owned two restaurants, four miles apart in the heart of Kansas City and The Plaza shopping area. The four-mile course follows the old streetcar/trolley tracks and hence, the name, Trolley Run. The Trolley Run is the largest annual fundraiser for CCVI and provides critical funding in the CCVI programming budget.  Trolley Run has succeeded through the generous support of our individual and corporate sponsors, including former title sponsor Sabates Eye Centers and many others.

Over the years, the Trolley Run has become one of the largest timed four-mile runs in the United States, and the first major run in Kansas City to use chip technology for race results.

You can find all the race details and previous race results at www.trolleyrun.org.
