About the Regalia Run

Join the fun and support UMKC’s students at the third annual UMKC Regalia Run/ Walk 5K and kids’ Kangaroo Hop on Sunday, September 27, 2015! Take a stroll or a run through memory lane as you revisit the college experience on this course that goes through the heart of UMKC’s Volker campus.

In 2013, UMKC continued its celebration of its 80th anniversary during Founders’ Week. This week is set aside and hosted by the UMKC Alumni Association as a way to honor and celebrate the university’s heritage and traditions. To kick-off the week, the inaugural Regalia Run 5K was held with more than 250 participants. A portion of the proceeds went to assist the MacQuarrie Graduate Fellowship Endowment Fund, in honor of Ron MacQuarrie, Ph.D. – professor emeritus and dean of the UMKC School of Graduate Studies from 1995-2011.

The 2015 Regalia Run 5K is hosted in partnership with UMKC Athletics.

Proceeds from the Regalia Run will go to support student scholarships for UMKC students and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
