Packet Pickup

Packet pickup will be held on Friday afternoon, January 22 from 2-6pm at the KC Running Company Store at 200 E 135th St. in KCMO.  It will be a drive through packet pickup and you will be able to pick up your packet and the packets of other registrants.  If you are not going to be able to join us on Saturday at the race, you can pick up your medal at packet pickup by requesting it.  We will take the leftover packets and shirts to the race on race morning beginning at 7:15am if you are not able to pick up your packet at packet pickup but we are discouraging participants from waiting until race morning if at all possible to reduce congestion in and around the KCRC tent.


There is lots of room to park at the Red Bridge Shopping Center so we are going to ask you to park in designated parts of the parking lot, based on your bib number and the map below, and join us at the start/finish in waves as we call you to the start/finish area by group (i.e. Bib numbers 1-75, 76-150, etc.  Please note that these parking areas are in the back parts on the lots, away from the shops at the shopping center, to allow customers of the shops and restaurants that are going to be open while we are there to park.  We want to be able to return to this shopping center in the future so please help us by parking in the back parts of the indicated lots.
