Hello Trolley runners! It's hard to believe we are in our final days of preparations for the 27th Annual CCVI Trolley Run. Below, you can read up on some frequently asked questions I get about race day. I can't wait to see you cross that finish line!
Q: Can I pick up my packet on race day? Is there race day registration?
A: Yes! We offer race day packet pick up in the SE parking lot at 75th and Wornall. We offer race day registration for $45, but please know you are not guaranteed a t-shirt or to be in the results immediately following the race.
Q: What happens if it rains?
A: We run rain or shine. In the event the weather is too dangerous for running, we make that call after holding for up to one hour. There are no refunds.
Q: How do I get to the Start Line?
A: We bus our runners from the Plaza up to our Start Line beginning at 5:45am. Arrive early to catch a bus, especially if you are in the Red or Blue waves. We start our race at 7:45 a.m.
Q: I registered for the wrong wave. What should I do?
A: Due to the size of our race, we have a wave start based on pace. If you need to move UP a wave you will need to make that change at packet pick up. However, you can fall back waves without changing your bib, simply join the corral in which you want to run.
Q: May I run with a stroller?
A: As long as you are in the WHITE WAVE, yes! Remember, you can always fall back into different waves without changing your bib.
Q: I injured myself and cannot run. May I transfer my registration to a friend?
A: Yes, they will need to come to packet pick up to make that change. This cannot be done race day.
Q: Do I have to wear my chip on my shoe and my race bib?
A: Have to? No. But we want you to! The chip on your shoe times you for the race, and it is also how we determine how many participants we had on race day, which is important to our team. As for your bib, we encourage you to wear that for purposes of timing as well as photos. Your bib number is how you will search for race photos of yourself. Our friends at SportsPhotos.com will be taking lots of photos all day that will be free to download!
Q: When do you give away the car?
A: Thanks to the generosity of the KC Buick/GMC dealers, we are able to do a drawing for the winner’s choice of a Buick Encore or GMC Canyon. This take places at our awards ceremony, around 9:15 a.m. at the After Bash stage. Don’t miss it!
