Where does the race start? Where does it end?
The course begins and ends on Grand Boulevard in front of the Sprint Center.
Where does the course go?
You’ll get to see all the beautiful sites of downtown Kansas City along the course, including the Sprint Center, Power & Light District, KC Star, Crown Center, Liberty Memorial, Union Station, KC Performing Arts Center and the Kansas City skyline. View the course map HERE.
Are there hills?
There is a challenging hill mid-way through the course. This is The Rivalry Run and by definition a competition, so we thought it was appropriate for the course to have a little meat to it.
Will there be food and drinks at the end?
Yes, bottled water will be available to all participants at the finish line. In addition, you may purchase a ticket to the post-race breakfast buffet at Johnny's Tavern for $5.
What if it rains?
We will run, rain or shine. However the race director reserves the right to cancel the race if it is unsafe to run/walk. Unfortunately, registration fees cannot be refunded if the race is cancelled due to unsafe weather.
Where do I park on race day?
Covered parking is available in the Power & Light District parking garages. Your ticket may be validated at McFadden's.
Do I have to register online?
No. You may also download a registration form HERE and mail it to us along with a check. You may even register during packet pick-up or on race day.
Where and when is packet pickup?
You may pick up your bib numbers, timing devices, t-shirts at Bank of the West in Overland Park (9400 Antioch Road) between 9am and 6pm on Friday August 25th.
Can a friend or family member pick up my packet?
What if my name is misspelled, my age is wrong, etc.?

I registered but can’t participate; can I still pick up my t-shirt?
Yes. Please come to packet pick-up to receive your t-shirt and goody bag. Shirts will NOT be mailed; however, they will be available at the Overland Park Bank of the West location until September 1st, 2017.
