Getting Started

Are you ready to take on the challenge of completing a marathon or ultra? Great! Then let's get started! Here are the first of many steps that you will be taking to become a marathon or ultra finisher.

Runners follow these steps:    

Step 1: From the home page choose which KRA program and event that you are participating in under the Available Programs tab.              

Step 2: Take note that the marathon program tabs are in red and the ultra program tabs are blue. Click the green Registration tab on the right hand side of the page.

Step 3:  Select Register a Returning Runner or click on the Register a New Runner if you are new to KRA. New runners will create their member account and continue with their program registration. Returning runners login to your account using your user name and password. Here can you update your account records.

Step 4:  While completing your program registration, one selection on the registration page is to select your Team. Click on the Team drop down bar to select your Team. If your team name is not listed please contact your Lead Mentor or the KRA office. If you are running individually please select Not-On-A-Team.

Proceed to the end of the registration process & payment page. When done you will receive a completion of registration notice as well as a comfirmation email.

Step 5: Lace up your shoes because you are now ready to run! Be sure to log your miles every time you run using our Mileage Tracking System. Here you will watch yourself complete our virtual marathon/ultra map. In addition, log your extra activities (biking, swimming, dancing or skate boarading for example) and keep track of your fruit and veggie consumption, sugary drinks or screen time on our Lifestyle Tracking page!

Step 6: Finish your last mile at one of our Final Mile Events.

Step 7: Enjoy your lifelong bragging rights of running the marathon or ultra distance!
