Ultramax Sports brings back the KC 15K and 7K race. This year's event will once again take place at the Community America Ballpark, home of the Kansas City T-Bones - you can literally walk from the hotel, to the race site, to Legends Mall and to dining and entertainment. This is the race to bring the entire family!
The 15K is the perfect distance for those individuals training for or have just completed a half or full marathon. Some of the largest events around the nation feature the 15K distance and the KC 15K is certainly on track to become a premier destination event for years to come.
The 7K distance is a nice upgrade from the standard 5K road race. This distace will give all those 5K runners a chance to challenge themselves with a slightly longer distance. Break the 5K grind with the KC 7K!
The 2013 KC15K and 7K event will have all the features of the largest and most successful events. Runners will finish inside the baseball complex and will give participants the unique and memorable experience Ultramax Sports is known for. After the finish, athletes, friends and families will gather for awards, post-race activities and celebrations.

Participants are awarded points at each Ultramax Series Race based on their individual finish time versus the overall amateur's finish time. Must like the USAT rankings, events in the series have a multiplier based on the specific event. You must be a USAT annual member before the first event of the series in order to be eligible to compete. See the Series page for complete scoring information!

We are recruiting a team of dedicated volunteers to assist in helping each participant reach her goal. We have positions of all kinds where volunteers can see the start, portions of the race and even the finish. Nearly 100% of all unsolicited racer comments include praise for our volunteers; this is truly what makes these events possible. The racers really appreciate your time because they know and realize they could not pursue this sport without volunteers.
