Chip Timing

Both the 10K and 5K will be bib chip timed.


Both courses are new this year starting and finishing at The Colonnade on the Concourse, passing The Kansas City Museum, historic homes, the waterfall on the bluffs and traversing along Cliff Drive, a US scenic byway. Because we plan to use these courses for one year only, they will be measured with a bicycle and Jones counter for accuracy but the measurements, maps and fee will not be submitted to USATF, saving the club about $800. 

Not sending documentation to USATF is only an issue if your road running performance needs to be accepted as a record or be nationally ranked.

In 2020, the race will start and finish at the Kansas City Museum and we plan to certify the both courses at that time to use for many years. 

For your safety we do not allow dogs, skateboards, inline skates or bicycles.

Strollers must walk the 5K, and remain behind the runners.
