Team managers will pay for their team, and all additional costs at the time of registration. On race day the team leader will ensure that their runners and vehicles adhere to the guidelines in the race packet. Print your team worksheet.

PARKING AT THE START: If you need to park your car in KC for the day, park on the street. The Roasterie lots will be locked at 5pm on Sunday. Just dropping your team member off? There is parking all around the Roasterie building and across the street from their cafe. If you have a bus or very large vehicle, park on Southwest Boulevard
VEHICLES: Only one vehicle per team is allowed at the exchange points and must have the provided team number sign in the windshield. Large vans are welcome, but refrain from bringing large buses. Space is limited at all exchange points, and normal size vehicles will keep traffic flowing. Vehicles must abide by all traffic rules along the course.
EMERGENCY AID: All exchange points will be staffed with a medical professional. Carry a cell phone for emergencies.
EXCHANGE POINT AID: Exchange points will have water and Gatorade for relay runners. Teams should carry water and food in their vehicles. Exchange point supplies are for the runners finishing the leg.
EXCHANGE POINT PARKING: Each team is responsible for transporting their runners to the correct location at the correct time. Teams are allowed one vehicle at the exchange points and that vehicle must display in the windshield the team route sign provided in your packet. Your team can have additional vehicles to transport runners but only ONE vehicle will be allowed in the exchange point. Additional vehicles can park or wait outside the exchange point. Large vans are okay, but please no big buses.
How to handle your vehicles and runners: Drop runner #1 off at the start, drive to Exchange #1 to drop off runner #2 and pick up runner #1. Repeat this process for all legs. A team may have multiple vehicles on the course if necessary (each person must have a seat belt.) However, there may only be one vehicle, (the one with your sign in the windshield) that can enter the exchange point. If your team is using two vehicles, we recommend putting runners #1-5 in one vehicle and runners #6-10 in the second vehicle. You can maintain communication between vehicles via morse code (or if you prefer, a passenger text messaging).
OUT OF TOWN RUNNERS: Out-of-town teams are encouraged to start from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00a.m to give yourself time to drive in. If you are coming in the day before, the closest hotels are The Westin Crown Center, The Sheraton, and The Holiday In express.
