Top endurance athlete Karnazes comes to KC
Dean Karnazes, one of the United States’ elite endurance runners and a best-selling author, will be in Kansas City, Mo., to run with local residents.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday at The North Face store on the Country Club Plaza. After the run, Karnazes will speak to members of the community at Neptune Courtyard, 47th Street and Wornall Road, about his recent “Run Across America” that was broadcast on “LIVE! with Regis and Kelly.” Live music, food and festivities will be offered after the fun run, and Karnazes will sign copies of his new book, “Run! 26.6 Stories of Blisters and Bliss” will be available.
Karnazes recently was named by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world.
