`

Postponement: The Joplin Memorial Run half marathon and 5K/10K has been postponed from May 16th to December 12th.

Inexplicably, the Wine in the Vines 5K at Seven Springs Winery is still shown as being "on" for Saturday, April 18th.  Surely, that event's not going to happen as scheduled.

*   *   *   *   *

WEEKEND EVENTS FOR APRIL 11 - 12

Two races that were scheduled for Saturday are now virtual races: The Wolf Creek Trail Run Half Marathon & 6K, and the Table Rock Lake Half Marathon & 5K.  Check the links to find out when and where you can run them, and to sign up.

If you overeat the Peeps and chocolate eggs on Sunday (Easter) and want to burn off some calories, the North Pole Marathon is on Monday.  Be sure to bring an extra layer.  Temperatures for the race are normally in the -20° to -30° range.

CANCER SUCKS 5K RUN/WALK (posted February 27th)

The race will start at 9:00 a.m. at the Royal Theatre, located across from the Morgan County Courthouse on S. Monroe St. in downtown Versailles.  Race-day registration opens at 8:00 a.m.

ELDON ROCK ISLAND ROAD RACE (posted December 2nd)

The third annual Eldon Rock Island Road Race will be held on Saturday, June 13th at the Rock Island Park in the heart of Eldon.   The race is organized by and benefits the Miller County Child Advocacy Council.

Online registration is pending; a mail-in registration form is available in .docx or .pdf form.

The race will start at 7:15 a.m.  Race-day registration will be available from 6:00 to 6:45 a.m.

ROCKY TOP 5K (posted August 7th) 

A brand-new trail race--the second to be announced in the Lake of the Ozarks Trail Series--is coming to the Lake of the Ozarks State Park in 2020.  The Rocky Top 5K (Facebook page) will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2020 on the Rocky Top Trail located near public beach #2 in Osage Beach.

Online registration and more race details are available through the race's UltraSignup.com page.  The race will be limited to 100 participants.

The entry fee is $40 until October 31st, after which it rises to $55.

Lake-area runners who have shied away from the trails should consider making this their first foray into trail running.  The race is right in our neighborhood, it's only 5K in length, the course isn't too hilly or difficult, the trail offers some nice lake and glade views, and--something you won't find at any road race in July--at least 95% of the course is in the shade.   (For what it's worth, my own description of the Rocky Top Trail can be found here).

The entry fee is $30 through June 30th, and $35 thereafter. T-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register by June 30th.

TRAIL OF FOUR WINDS 25K (updated March 21st)

Registration is now open for next year's 4 Fore 30 race, to be held on Saturday-Sunday, December 5-6th. With the race no longer limited to 30 hours, the name will be slightly changed to 4 Fore 30 Infinity. Registration and more information can be found here.

4 Fore 30 is now a "golden ticket" race, giving the winner a guaranteed entry into the Super Bowl of "last man standing" races, Big's Backyard Ultra in October 2021.
