|Shawnee Mission Park to be Closed Morning of June 13|
Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa, will be closed for the morning of June 13 due to a special event.
The park and all lake access will be closed to the public until noon on this date for the annual Kansas City Corporate Challenge Duathlon/Triathlon.
Now in its 25th year, the Kansas City Corporate Challenge is an Olympic-type event that allows Kansas City Area corporations to interact with each other through a variety of sporting events. The first, and one of the largest corporate games in the country, the aim of the KCCC is to promote employee fitness and recreation within the Kansas City business community.
In 2003, the KCCC drew 20,000 individual participants representing 164 companies, up from 1,500 individual participants from 18 companies when the games started in 1980.
