Two hundred and seventy (270) runners will be selected in the lottery from all registered entries.

There are very few people who qual­ify for spe­cial con­sid­er­a­tion, and their entries must still be received by the entry dead­line. These are:

  • An orig­i­nal-8 race founder (1989)
  • Top over­all male & female in all pre­vi­ous KKN­STRs (1989–2015)
  • Run­ners who are going for their tenth or twentieth (or higher) KKNSTR finish
  • Pre­vi­ous KKNSTR race direc­tors (1989–2015)
  • Active Knee Knacker com­mit­tee mem­bers who have served 3 con­sec­u­tive years on the committee
  • Volunteers/runners who have con­tributed sig­nif­i­cantly to the race or the sport
  • Major sponsor
  • Runners who applied for the lottery the past 2 consecutive years (2014 & 2015), and were not selected in both of those years. This has been occasionally referred to as the “Two-Time Loser” rule, but we prefer to call it the “Third-Time winner” rule :)
