Kansas City's #1 Rated Running Event is almost here! The 2013 Brew to Brew weekend is just 3 weeks away! This year the fun lasts all weekend long. It starts on Saturday, April 6th, with our Solo race. This event, in which men and women will single-handedly take on the 44ish miles alone, is for the brave, strong, and "spirit"-ed. The following day will feature our highly-toted and camaraderie-filled relay competition. The fun starts at Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City and finishes up on the leveee in Lawrence, near the Free State Brewing Company.  This will surely be a day to remember, at least by the drivers of your team. Although registration has filled up at this point (for the relay race, solo event is still open), we welcome you to join us as a volunteer and see why KC voted this event as their favorite! If you are able to help on either Saturday or Sunday, please e-mail kctcrunner@gmail.com!

If you're struggling with slow pacing, low counts of endorphins, and/or inability to get off of your couch -KCTC has the solution. In fact, KCTC IS the solution. Running is just one of those things that is hard to do alone. There's something about a group mentality that makes motivation a little easier to find. Lucky for you, we have organized FIFTEEN group runs across the KC Metro Area! Every type of runner (and non-runner) is welcome. Be sure to check out our listing to see which one works for you!
