Run Races, Earn Points and Win!

KCTC is kicking off the first annual Race KC Series.  Competition is open to all KCTC members. Any member of another RRCA club may be a guest KCTC member by paying a $10 entry fee for the series.

Anyone running a "Race KC Series" race at any point in the season and placing in the top five in their age group is recorded as part of the competition.. Standings are updated and published on the Kansas City Track Club website (www.kctrack.org) and Facebook page as the season progresses.  Active KCTC membership must be in place by Nov 1st of the series year to receive final recognition and awards.

We are continually updating the list of approved races. Please visit http://kctrack.org/races/race-kc-series for the most up-to-date list!
