The race is limited to two hundred and five (205) runners, so 270 will be selected in the race lottery from all registered entries. Allowing for an attrition rate of approximately 24% prior to race day (consistent with past race experience), this will result in 205 runners on race day.

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 (1989–2014)
  • Run­ners who are going for their 10th or 20th KKNSTR finish
  • Pre­vi­ous KKNSTR race direc­tors (1989–2014)
  • 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 (1 spot)
  • Runners who applied for the lottery the past 2 consecutive years (2013 & 2014), 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 :)
