WEEKEND EVENTS FOR FEBRUARY 23 - 24

After a nearly three-month hiatus, we're finally back to racing in the Lake area.  On Saturday, our race season kicks off with the 18th annual Polar Bear 5K Strut benefiting Special Olympics Missouri.  This year's race features a new start/finish location, a new start time, and a new course that will challenge you with the toughest hill of any Lake-area 5K in history, and it comes in the very first half-mile.  It starts at 8:30 a.m. at Public Beach #2 in the Lake of the Ozarks State Park in Osage Beach.  (Sorry, I don't know when race-day registration will open.)   Complete details about the event can be found further down this column under "Upcoming Events".
