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.
Race bib transfer must be officially completed through GO! St. Louis and the online registration system prior to the race. Unauthorized race bib transfer is prohibited. While the practice of giving your race bib to someone else, may seem harmless, it can result in serious consequences to both parties involved. It’s an issue of false identity and a liability issue. Why? The most important reason is that your race bib is attached to your identity, so if an emergency occurs that requires medical attention or a race official must identify a participant, we need to have accurate information. In addition, finisher awards may be impacted. If race organizers identify an individual who has given their race bib to another person, it will result in disqualification and a minimum two-year ban for both individuals for any GO! St. Louis race.
