If you are unable to pick up your award at the race, email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you want your award. The RaceDay Events office is a house converted to office space at 208 W 79th St, KC, MO 64114. You can pick up anytime beginning the Tuesday after the race. Your award will be in a pickup bin in the basement stairwell in the back of the house off the circle driveway.

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.

If you are participating in the race as a virtual participant, you or a friend can pick up your packet, shirt and finisher medal at packet pickup. Tell the volunteers you are a virtual runner and look for the Virtual Runner sign. We will have your packet pulled ahead of time. DO NOT GO TO A COMPUTER to have a bib number assigned to you! Complete the distance whenever and wherever is convenient.
If you are unable to pick up your packet before the race, email email@example.com to let us know you want your packet. You can pick up anytime beginning the Tuesday after the race at the Raceday Events office. The office is a house converted to office space at 208 W 79th St, KC, MO 64114. Your packet will be in a pickup bin in the basement stairwell in the back of the house off the circle driveway. The pickup bins are outside and available to you 24/7 so you can stop by when it is convenient for you with no need to check in with us again.
If you did not originally sign up for the virtual race but need to switch to the virtual option, email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible or let us know at packet pickup.
If you cannot run the race because of a family emergency, a change in work schedule, or a stuffy nose, you don’t have to worry about forfeiting your registration fee, shirt and finisher medal. A virtual race is one you run yourself, where you want and when you want. If you have not already registered as a virtual runner, email email@example.com to let us know so we can switch your registration.
