Kevin Hart Runs KC

If running 3.1 miles doesn’t get your heart pounding, maybe a brush with one of comedy’s leading men will.

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart just announced he’s coming to KC this weekend for an impromptu 5K. The free run presented by Nike+ Run Club will be emceed by City Gym’s Hailee Bland Walsh and starts at 7:36 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 22 at Brush Creek Community Center (gates will open around 6:30 a.m.). RSVP now to make sure you get a spot before they’re all gone—and a high-five from the star, who will be doling out encouragement to all the runners as they cross the finish line.
