Shirts, Medals and Awards
This year's QQ shirt is a unisex tri-blend 3/4-sleeve shirt. The 50% polyester, 25% combed ring-spun cotton and 25% rayon jersey gives the shirt a very soft feel. The shirt will feature a heather white body and vintage heather amethyst sleeves. Sizes available at XS-2XL. Those who register on or before February 25th will be guaranteed a race shirt in their size. First come, first serve after February 25th. Finishers will receive custom event medals. Plaques will be awarded to the top three overall finishers and the top three in five year age groups for each gender.
To avoid overcrowding the trail, registration is limited to the first 550 entrants. The entry fee is $53, from which $3 goes to the Missouri Department of Natural Resources to support our state parks and trail system. A portion of the proceeds also will be donated to SLUGS (St. Louis Ultrarunners Group), an organization dedicated to promoting ultra-running in the central Midwest. Click here to register. Registration will also be available at packet pick-up and on race morning.
