In partnership with Hy-Vee, the Kids Fun Run at the Dr. Bob Run serves as the kick-off event for the 2016-17 Hy-Vee OMAAT Program.

About Rim Rock Farm8

The University of Kansas hosts its home cross country meets at historic Rim Rock Farm. Before being donated to KU in 2004, the property was owned by former head track and field and cross country coach Bob Timmons and has been the home of the Jayhawks since the 1974 season. Any runner or spectator will say that the course is quite challenging and unusual. In addition to having two covered bridges as part of the course, Rim Rock Farm also features specific hills, turns and other landmarks that are named after former Jayhawk greats. Dispersed throughout the course are silhouette statues of seven legendary Jayhawk distance runners including Herb Semper, Allen Frame, John Lawson and Olympians Billy Mills, Wes Santee, Glenn Cunningham and Jim Ryun.
