We love confirmation that what we are doing here at KCTC is making a difference. From hosting a Beginning Runner’s Class to supporting the Kansas City Smoke elite racing team, our priority is to invest in runners and make Kansas City a better place to run. And apparently it’s working!
The Kansas City Smoke is a nonprofit racing team. Runners have to meet strict racing qualification times and maintain membership in the KC Track Club and the Kansas City Smoke. This is one of the charities we supported in 2015 and it did not disappoint!
