WHERE CAN I BUY K2C MERCHANDISE?
K2C merchandise will be available for purchase here! You can pick up pre-ordered merchandise at the expo. Merchandise will also be available for purchase at the expo and on race day.
WHERE CAN I FIND LODGING NEAR THE RACE?
Hotels in close proximity to N.C. State University can be found here.
WHAT ARE THE NEW TEAM CATEGORIES?
Just like our individual runners, teams can choose to run as Challenger Teams, Casual Teams, or No Doughnut Teams.
Challenger Teams are for groups of runners who wish to band together as they take on the Challenge, competing against other Challenger teams in an effort to average the lowest team time and claim victory. To be eligible for awards, Challenger teams must have a minimum of 6 runners. Only the top 6 runners per team will be scored. Victory is sweetest when shared, right?
Casual Teams are for groups of runners who wish to take a more leisurely approach to the Challenge, but want to do so with friends! Casual teams may be as big or small as desired, ranging from large corporate or university groups to pairs of runners. Casual Teams will not be competing on the basis of speed or gastrointestinal fortitude, but keep an eye out for a few different contests we’ll be introducing in the coming months that provide your Casual Team with a way to claim victory and some sweet K2C swag nonetheless!
No Doughnut Teams are just like Casual Teams, but without any doughnuts on race day. No Doughnut Teams can be as big or small as desired and are noncompetitive.
Regardless of team or individual status, all runners pay the same registration fees, start at the same time, and receive their own t-shirt.
HOW DO I REGISTER AS A TEAM?
If you’re the first member of your team to register, go to the registration form here. Select Team at the top of the registration page and click Register Captain for your desired type of team. You will be prompted to enter a Team Name and Team Password. Other members of your team will need the Team Name and Team Password to join the team when they register, so make sure to share it with them (but not anyone else!). Fill out the rest of the registration form and payment information to complete registration.
If someone else has already created a team that you wish to join, go to the registration form here. Select Team at the top of the registration page and click Register Teammate for your desired type of team. A dropdown list of teams will appear; select your team and enter the Team Password to join. If you do not have the Team Password, you will not be able to join the team and will need to contact the Team Captain. Fill out the rest of the registration form and payment information to complete registration.
