Last weekend, you and 1,200 of your closest running buddies descended upon the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus to participate in our makeshift KT82 Relay. It required letting go of expectations about the event you’d been hoping to run, quickly making new plans with your teammates, and, most of all, it required your trust in our team here at GO! St. Louis to provide you with an event that could still live up to the experience and camaraderie you signed up for.
To all of you, we say: THANK YOU! We organized the event, but you came with energy, spirit and enthusiasm for each other and for the race. And best of all, we had a GREAT day!
We wanted you to be the first to know a couple of exciting things…
SIUE in 2020: We couldn’t agree with you more – our makeshift event turned out to not only be hugely successful, but also a pretty awesome idea for the future. We are pleased to announce that we’re adding it to our calendar of events for 2020! (more on that below…). Because SIUE is a college campus, and that event was staged on their cross country field, we need to keep it in the late spring when school is out of session. Date coming soon!
KT82 Relay: In order to have the “new” relay format in the spring (and quite honestly to avoid future issues with flooding in spring years to come), we have worked hard with the City of Hermann to allow us to stage this event in early Fall, which has previously been something they wouldn’t consider because of its proximity to Oktoberfest.
To celebrate this exciting news, and thank you for your support this year, we want to offer our teams the following:
Guaranteed entry into:
Fall 2019 KT82 Relay: September 14, 2019 (yes we’re going to do it in 3.5 months!)
Fall 2020 KT82 Relay: September 12, 2020
Discount on your team’s KT82 entry: $100 off team entry fee
Discount on our upcoming All-American 5K, next Sunday, June 16: 25% off entry fee
The chance to help us name the brand-new SIUE event, scheduled for late May/early June 2020!!
All details, codes, and deadlines will be individually emailed to team members today!
Thank you again from the whole team here at GO! St. Louis. We were blown away by the support and enthusiasm for the race last weekend, and can’t wait to do it again with you all soon!
