Run for the Roses
The K-State Gardens will host the second annual RUN FOR THE ROSES 1K walk/5K run (certified) on April 29, 2023, from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.. NEW for 2023: $25 student 5K rate, face painting and balloon artist for kids, and 10,000 tulips in bloom.
Runners will start and finish in the beautiful K-State Gardens, take a lap on the track inside the historic World War 1 Memorial stadium, and cruise by Anderson Hall, the Student Union, and Ahearn Fieldhouse. It's a surprisingly flat, fast course where you're sure to set a state record on our USAFT certified course! The 1K course will follow garden paths and docents will be available for questions, tours, or sharing exciting future plans!
Proceeds from the event will support K-State Garden projects such as: The Reflecting Pool, the Conservatory, the 150th Anniversary of the Gardens in 2025, etc.
