$59 for Entry for Four-Person Relay Team ($120 Value)
Each team member receives entry to the running event, a t-shirt, entry to the post race party and two drink tickets per person for use at Velvet Dog and Tower Tavern on race day.
On June 8, runners converge on Union Hill and the Martini Corner Entertainment District for a four-mile relay race through the streets of Kansas City. Divided into teams of four, each competitor carries a baton in their hand or mouth as they dash through a one-mile portion of the route before handing the stick off to the next teammate. Those who chart the best times will be recognized with post-race awards for the fastest men's, women's, co-ed, and corporate teams. After the race, the lure of live music emanates from nearby bars Velvet Dog and Martini Corner, where a post-race party welcomes runners to replenish with included drinks and socialize with fellow runners.
Proceeds from the race will benefit Ozanam Guild, a 65-year-old institution that provides care and support for children and families in need. Since opening its doors in 1948, Ozanam Guild has helped more than 7,000 troubled children secure a better future through therapeutic care and academic assistance.
