WEEKEND EVENTS FOR FEBRUARY 28 - MARCH 1

The local race season kicks off this weekend with one of the oldest and grandest of them all--the Polar Bear Strut 5K Run/Walk, benefiting Special Olympics Missouri.  This is the 14th year for the race (gosh, how time flies!), and it starts at 10:00 a.m. Saturday at Osage Beach City Hall. Registration opens at 8:00 a.m.  For more details, scroll down to "Upcoming Events" further down this page.

As regular visitors to this website know, we always highlight local runners taking on new and bigger challenges.  April Boicourt, who ran her first half marathon at Waddell & Reed Kansas City last October, is going for her very first marathon finish at the Little Rock Marathon on Sunday.   April will be joined by experienced marathoners and training partners Ashley Pryor and Heather Doyle.  The weather forecast for Little Rock on Sunday is looking gloomy (a 60% chance of rain, with morning temperatures in the upper 30s to upper 40s), but nothing will stop these tough women from crossing the finish line.  Good luck, ladies! (Live results should be available at this link.)

POLAR BEAR STRUT 5K RUN/WALK (posted January 4th)

The granddaddy of all local 5Ks, the Polar Bear Strut, returns for its 14th year on Saturday, February 28th.  The event is a benefit for Special Olympics Missouri and is hosted by the Osage Beach Police Department.  

The run/walk starts at the Osage Beach City Hall on Osage Beach Parkway at 10:00 a.m.  Race-day registration will be open from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m.)

The entry fee is a donation or fund-raising minimum of $50.  Online registration and fundraising is available.  

If this will be your first time at the Polar Bear Strut, be sure to wear your hill-running shoes, because the course is nothing but hills.  (Even the seemingly "flat" section on Osage Beach Parkway has a slight grade to it.)  The climb up Case Rd. on the return trip is sure to be a challenge, as it's one of the toughest climbs among all of our local 5Ks.  Click on the course map below for a larger image.
