The Wilderness Run is a challenging, but fun
cross-country run. Since its inception in 2002, the Wilderness Run, has been a true adventure for all who participate. Shoal Creek Living History Museum is a village of seventeen authentic 19th Century buildings covering 80 acres of beautiful rolling hills in Kansas City North’s Hodge Park. The buildings date from 1807–1885 and include everything from log cabin and clapboard structures, to an antebellum mansion home.
Operating under the guiding principle and purpose of ‘kindling the imagination to a world of possibilities,’ Shoal Creek seeks to inspire the visitor of today and recapture the spirit of the 19th Century. This goal is accomplished through innovative, engaging events and programs that immerse participants in the sights, sounds, smells, and feelings that were once part of the Kansas City area. Shoal Creek Living History volunteers will bring the museum to life the day of the run, as they portray the lifestyle of the 19th Century.
Friends and family are welcome to come enjoy the museum the day of the run. The Wilderness Run promises to challenge even the most experienced runner/walker, yet is friendly enough for even those novice participants. So get your running shoes ready, and join us for this unique run.
