4/13/14 - Camp Barnabas

We grew by 30 percent! We raised $30,000. The rain held off to let nearly everyone finish. There was a huge party at the end. It would have been an even bigger party if the sun a come out, but some of the entertainment had to cancel. We will keep getting bigger and better with a new course, more volunteers and another big party. Please join us in 2015.

4/12/14 - Freeman Family 5K

Nearly 500 runners ran the 5k this year. Many more chose to walk the mile. The Joplin community unites like no other. We were happy to be there, as we have for the past several years. Thanks Joe, John, & Tina.

4/12/14 - Love Your Neighbor 5K

The Venues church put on the Love Your Neighbor 5K, which ran through the Missions Hills Subdivision. The course was shortened by a diversion, but was beautiful and scenic. It was a great first-time effort sponsored by Mama Jean's, Rick's Automotive, and Ozark Racing Systems. Renee Steele was the race director, along with Barbie Pohl. We are sorry that Renee, who plans all events for this church, will be leaving us. We enjoyed it!

4/12/14 - Irene McKay 5K - Frisco Highline Trail

We ran from Conco Quarries toward Springfield and back for the 5K. It is always a great venue. Good money was raised for the Chromosone 18 Research & Registry Society. Luther Young put this together for his granddaughter, Irene.

4/6/14 - 2nd Annual S.U.C.

This race was embraced by over 640 people. Pictures are here. Use the toggle arrow beside the race name to swith to searchable results or team results. Everyone ended up with mud on their face. There was a lot of energy, excitement, and team building. See you next year.

4/5/14 - Glade Top Trail Run

How did I not know about this? I guess others did. It is a destination trail in the Mark Twain National Forest, 40 minutes south of Ava. We had a solid turnout for the first year, and I am certain all will return. Race Director Liz Kyger did an excellent job of organizing her XC team, school staff, and volunteers. It was great fun.

Ozark Tiger Streak

Tara Holcomb took the helm of the event this year and added some color. It was brilliant to change it up for the kids, and many ran, along with parents and admirers. We love it when everything goes smoothly. Thanks Joe & John.

Blue Eye Bull Dog

Who does not like to run at Dogwood Canyon? That's what I thought. It was a great opportunity to do a 5K and get lost in the surroundings -- not literally. Thanks Linda, Tina, and Amanda. It ran without a hitch.

3/29/14 - Highline Run for Scouting

The was the third year since the race was revamped, and our numbers increased. We had better shirts, medals, more aid, and more food. Come back next year, and bring someone to help support Scouting in the Ozarks. It was a pleasure being around two-time olympian Jason Pyrah, along with race director David Eslick, Dr. Michael Clarke, Danny Correll, and others. Everyone did a great job, and the spring weather helped tremendously.

1st Annual Run Like a Pirate - Pipkin Middle School

It is brilliant if you can come up with a theme and carry it out to your event. Many pirates showed up to run the mile or the 5K. The race director was so well costumed that we could not find her to start the race. Aargh! This race has a lot of potention, and there were many people for a first-year effort.

Dash for Down Syndrome

Reliable Mercedes and many other sponsors help to bring this race to fruition. It is mostly the hard work of Joe Lomosi and Team Notorious N.I.A. that make it so special. Each year, participation has grown, and I see great plans for the future.


Everyone who participated in this out on the Frisco Highline Trail at Willard was a hero for a day, at least.

H.O.P.E. is a women's service group dedicated to raising funds and awareness for pediatric emergencies. We put on several great fundraisers and have monthly socials.

Our goal is to have fun and make lifelong friends while serving our mission and helping families here in the Ozarks. 




It was a nice day for green beer, tutus, and centipedes. The mile, 5K, and 10K, offered a tour of historical Springfield decorated in many bright, moving colors. The centipede contest made it unique, bright, and cheerful. We enjoyed it a lot. I wish I would have taken photos.

3/15/14 - FOOT PURSUIT

We had a foot race today from 2nd Baptist Church, and the Police came. I've never felt so safe while doing a race. The Southern Hills neighborhood had cops and robbers running rampant for the 5K & the 8K. It was a beautiful morning.


We welcomed a small field today at the Springfield Exposition Center. The venue was wonderful with great restrooms and spacious areas for stretching and enjoying post-race snacks. Legacy Bagelry bagels were awesome. Come back next year, and bring a friend.


It sure was good to see everyone this year. There were 160 more folks than last year. Sweatshirts were back by incessant demand. Hope your run was pleasant.



I enjoyed the venue, snacks, course, and distance. Let me know what you think. We had plenty of room, but I want to hear from you. I think we'll do it again next year. The snow-covered course was challenging, but it made for a scenic adventure -- especially for those who ran down onto the JR Trail into the woods.

Thanks to all of the volunteers and to Wellness Concepts for sponsoring.


It was a soggy, cool, fun morning to run on the MSU Campus. Thanks to all who came out and for your patience in the postponement and make-up date. Christy Mahan & Kevin Abernathy were just two of the winners today.

This is the way we kickstart our year. It's fun to have a few folks over for pancakes. Oh, we ran also. Madeline Hardison was less than a second off of her predicted time and actual time. She wins 12 free ORS races this year! Thanks to everyone who showed.



Some call this work, but we call it fun!
