History of the Race
Now in its 33rd year, 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. Trolley Run is the largest annual fundraiser for CCVI and provides critical funding to support the specialized education and individualized therapies children receive every year. Trolley Run has succeeded through the generous support of our individual and corporate sponsors, including former title sponsor Sabates Eye Centers and many others.
The CCVI Trolley Run is one of Kansas City's oldest and largest runs and was the first major run in Kansas City to use chip technology for race results.
A Record-breaking Run
Since 1998, several records have been broken for a four-mile U.S. race. The Trolley Run continues to hold these distinctions:
- Since 1998, home of Men’s Four-mile U.S. Best
- Since 1999, home of Men’s Masters Four-mile U.S. Best
- Since 2000, home of Women’s Four-mile Course Record
2021 result information will be available soon!
