The KC XC Cup was started with idea of bringing simplicity and community back into a grassroots running event in the Kansas City area. An event where we run because we love running. An event where each and every participant celebrates the accomplishments of those that they are running against with.
The KC XC Cup will take place on a beautiful independent grass cross country course located on the north side of our beautiful city. The morning will consist of 2 5k races: KC XC 5k Individual/Team Race, HS Girls and Boys 5k Individual/Team Race. Every participant is asked to stick around after you finish your race so that we can all cheer in the finishers of every race, together!
You’ll notice when registering that the entry fee is much lower than what we have become accustomed to over the last several years. That gets back to making The KC XC Cup a beautiful event that is truly about the run and building a community with an unbreakable bond. We refused to double or triple your entry fee in order to give you a cheap t-shirt that you’ll never wear again and a medal that you’ll forget about by the time you get to your car. We refused to double or triple your entry fee in order to pad our own pockets. We understand this choice will keep many people from signing up for this race and we’re ok with that. We’ll raffle off some awesome stuff after the race- (yep, you must be present to win) that goes back to everyone sticking around after their race to watch everyone else finish. Any funds remaining after expenses will go to Warrior’s Best Friend, because we think that what they’re doing is rad.
With all of this being said, we’ve decided to be extremely tight with the number of runners allowed in the event and only have 425 total spots available for the inaugural The KC XC Cup. Register now and make November 10, 2018 a day that resets the way our city thinks about running. It starts with one.
