In 2022, the “mini-lottery” was a bit different. Most runners had rolled over their entries from the 2020 race for 2 years now, and were given an option to exercise their entry for either the 2022 or 2023 races. We then held a “mini-lottery” to allocate 90 additional spots that were freed up by runners who opted to rollover their entries to 2023. The complete list of runners entered in the 2022 event may be found at

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

  • An orig­i­nal-8 race founder (1989)
  • Top over­all male & female in all pre­vi­ous KKN­STRs (1989–present)
  • Run­ners who are going for their tenth or twentieth (or higher) KKNSTR finish
  • Pre­vi­ous KKNSTR race direc­tors (1989–present)
  • Active Knee Knacker com­mit­tee mem­bers who have served 2 con­sec­u­tive years on the committee
  • Volunteers/runners who have con­tributed sig­nif­i­cantly to the race or the sport
  • Major sponsor
