Location and Course | Course Map
Cuivre River State Park is located in Troy, Missouri. Runners are sent onto the race course in waves of 25 that have been seeded according to their predicted pace for a road 10K.
The 2016 event features a new 13.1K course that incorporates completely different trails from the original QQ and will take runner through some of the most picturesque areas of the park. Course will begin and finish near race headquarters at the beautiful stone lakeside pavilion. Heading out on the course in waves of 25, participants can expect to rolling dirt hills, mixed with rocky patches, great scenic views from all angles around the lake, open fields with tall grass, before heading back into the woods. The course offers new challenges for every level; competitive runner's can let loose and move into a flow around twist and turns without having to worry about difficult climbs. Novice runner's will get a taste of a semi-fast course with some challenging footing, while enjoying awesome scenery. Beginner's can enjoy striking views along the entire course that will remind you of the Ozarks, with some challenging footing and questions along the way to keep you on your toes!
All entrants who register on or before October 11th will be guaranteed a QQII hoodie! (Late registrants will receive hoodies if available.) The QQII hoodie is heathered blue and will have two-color art on the front and back. The 85%/15% cotton/poly fabric has a super-soft soft vintage feel. It's full-zip and has a full hood, cuffs, and kangaroo pockets. Its fit is standard unisex sizing. Consult the following size chart to get the best fit:
Finisher Medals & Awards
All finishers will receive a custom event medal. Plaques will be awarded to the top three overall finishers and the top three in five year age groups.
To avoid overcrowding the trail, registration is limited to the first 550 entrants. Entry fees include both a $3 fee charged by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and the online processing charge.
