We have once again organized housing options for the Tour of Kansas City race weekend on June 24th and 25th. Park University has extended the deal we worked out for youth racers to all Tour of KC participants. Those looking to save some serious cash can book their stay with Park University. Located just north of Downtown KC in historic Parkville, Missouri, this beautiful campus is an easy drive to both venues. Those staying at Park University will have two options; bring your own linens for $15 per head/per night or they can provide linens for $25 per head/per night. You will choose your option during the room registration process.
