In 2022, the “mini-lottery” is a bit different. Most runners have rolled over their entries from the 2020 race for 2 years now, and have been given an option to exercise their entry for either the 2022 or 2023 races. Once we know how many have selected the 2023 race, we can determine how many additional spots will be available for the 2022 race. Please check back here towards the end of January for an exact number. That number of additional runners will be selected in the mini-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 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
