Due to the anticipated high demand for entry in the GO! Missouri KT82, a lottery process will be utilized to ensure fairness and equal access. The KT82 lottery registration will open on February 3 and remain open until February 17. Immediately after registration closes, a lottery will be held for the 200 available team slots. The total team cost for both 6-person and 3-person teams is $500. The 2014 KT82 has officially sold out of the 200 available team spots. More than 416 teams entered the lottery.
A non-refundable, $5 fee will be collected at registration to confirm each team’s entry into the KT82 Lottery. The $5.00 lottery fee from each team will be donated to the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation. Founded in 1997, The Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization that helps meet financial needs placed on natural resource conservation and conservation-related outdoor recreation.

The KT82 starts in Creve Coeur Park, primarily traveling the Katy Trail through the historic towns of Augusta and Marthasville, en route to the finish line in Hermann City Park (at the Hermann Amphitheater). The Katy Trail provides a terrific running venue including scenic vistas, bluffs, views of the Missouri River and numerous, wine country vineyards. The course includes 18 legs and 82 miles of running. 3 of the legs involve more challenging, single track running on St. Charles County (Missouri Department of Conservation) trails.
Timing & Pacing Requirements
The KT82 is a relay event spanning 82 miles of trail running. Your pace is critical information that helps organize a staggered start, ensuring that all teams and runners finish in Hermann before darkness. It is critical that each team member enter their 10K pace data accurately. The inherent nature of the KT82, the distance and darkness require that your cumulative team pace be 10:30 per mile or under.
Inaccurate pace estimates will potentially impact race support for your team as exchange points and support stations will be staffed in keeping with pace estimates. Teams running faster than their indicated pace may be held at checkpoints to ensure safety and support. Teams running slower than their submitted pace may be asked to skip a leg or legs of the KT82.
