ATTENTION ALL
OUTBACK IN THE OZARKS
RUNNERS, DRIVERS AND VOLUNTEERS

The 2018 edition of the Lake of the Ozarks Runners t-shirts have just arrived, and because your race is now just a week away, we’re putting you at the front of the line to get one.


Click on the above thumbnail for a larger image.

The men’s t-shirts are the same color (“safety green”) as previous Lake Area Runners’ shirts.  The women's shirts, though, are much brighter than before. (They’re so bright, ladies, that others may need to wear solar eclipse glasses to safely look at you.)

As you can see, for the first time, we’ve added tank tops to our shirt options. We’ve noticed that many women prefer to wear tank tops in warm or hot weather, so we think these will prove popular.   Tank tops don't seem to be nearly as popular among the men, so theirs are pretty limited in quantity.  The men’s tank tops weren't available in safety green, so we went with yellow.

All of the t-shirts and tank tops are available free of charge. (Yes, you read that right. They’re free.)

So, if you're heading to Outback in the Ozarks and you want a shirt, YOU NEED TO CONTACT YOUR TEAM CAPTAIN BY THIS SUNDAY NIGHT (OCTOBER 22ND) and tell him what size (small, medium, large or XL) and what style (t-shirt and/or tank top) you want. We’ll get the required shirts to your team captain, and he’ll handle distribution to the team members.

For anyone reading this who's not doing Outback in the Ozarks but who would still like a shirt, we’ll figure out a plan for a general distribution in due course.

WEEKEND EVENTS FOR OCTOBER 21-22

Two big races and lots of smaller, shorter ones are on tap this weekend.  The Kansas City Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K/10K takes place on Saturday, followed by The Great GO! St. Louis Half Marathon & 5K/10K on Sunday.  There are lots of 5Ks going on in both Kansas City and St. Louis as well. 

There are no Lake-area races this weekend, but just a short drive away is the Rotary Route 5K Run in Lebanon on Saturday.  The Lebanon Rotary Club uses proceeds from the event to buy winter coats for kids in need.

The Missouri high school cross country championship series begins this weekend. The Class 4 district races are on Saturday in Nixa. Camdenton is one of 12 schools that will be competing. Those who qualify at this race will proceed to the Class 4 sectionals on October 28th. The Class 1, 2 & 3 districts races, which include Osage and Eldon, will also be on the 28th.

ROCK 'N' ROLL ST. LOUIS HALF MARATHON, 10K & 5K (updated October 15th)



The cold front that moved in Saturday night made this morning's Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Half Marathon & 10K the chilliest in the race's seven-year history.  Temperatures were in the low-to-mid 50s, and breezy winds adding to the chill.

Three runners from the Lake area ran the half marathon, while one ran the 5K held on Saturday.  That represents the smallest number the Lake area has sent to the race, and was down significantly from the eleven who participated last year.

Pete and Anita Leyva made it seven Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Half Marathons in a row.  There are very few Lake-area runners who have that many consecutive appearances at a race.


Flashback photo: Runners from the Lake area gather for a group photo before the inaugural Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Marathon & Half Marathon on October 27, 2011.   Pete and Anita Leyva are sitting on the right end of the front row.  (Todd Raney, in the middle of the second row, was still over a year away from running his first marathon.)

This was a watershed race for Anita Leyva. For the first time, Anita finished Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis ahead of Pete. She finished in 1:52:57, placing sixth (of 209) in the women's 45-49 age group--her highest-ever placing at Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis. Just for grins, here are Pete's and Anita's finish times through the years:

Participation was down substantially at this year's race, and for every distance. There were 5,519 finishers at this year's race, down 32% from last year's 8,143. Compare that to the 17,932 finishers at the inaugural race in 2011, when the 5K and 10K weren't even offered. That's an astounding decline for a big-city race.

GREEN MOUNTAIN MARATHON (updated October 16th)

Vermont is playing hard to get for Todd Raney.  After two prior attempts--in May of 2016 and July of this year--to run a sub 4-hour marathon in the state, Todd was back for his third attempt this weekend at the Green Mountain Marathon.

Todd reports that strong headwinds after the turnaround on the out-and-back course stood in his way today, resulting in a 4:09:55 finish. That leaves his sub-4 total unchanged at 42 states.   He'll try to add New Jersey to his total next weekend.

Complete marathon results can be found here.

BEAR CREEK RUN (updated October 16th)


Congratulations to Jim McDermott for winning the men's 60-and-over age group at yesterday's fourth annual Bear Creek Run trail half marathon in Columbia.  Jim finished in 1:51:32, ahead of five other competitors in his age group, and 21st overall. 

Willard Haley's name doesn't appear in the official results, but he ran the race and finished in 2:30:xx.

There were 196 solo runners and 9 relay teams at the race.

Full results can be found here.

FRANKENSTEIN 5K (posted October 15th)


Believe it or not, there really is a Frankenstein, Missouri, located about 12 miles east of Jefferson City.  While not an incorporated city, Frankenstein is the namesake for the Frankenstein 5K put on by St. Mary School in nearby Bonnots Mill.

Scott and Jayna Gray are believed to be the first Lake-area participants in the race's six-year history.  They finished side-by-side, in 43:59.

GIVE 'EM THE BIRD 5K RUN, 1-MILE WALK & KIDS RACE (posted July 27th)

Versailles Total Fitness' seventh annual Give 'Em The Bird 5K run and 1/4-mile fun unwalk will be held on Saturday, November 4th.  It will start at 9:00 a.m. at Versailles Total Fitness at 131 N. Monroe in downtown Versailles.  As in previous years, proceeds from the event will go to Food for Morgan County to help local families in need during the holiday season.

Give 'Em The Bird has the biggest "wow" factor of any 5K in the Lake area, including a live radio broadcast and music by race co-sponsor KS95.1, a live singing of the national anthem, a chorale group singing on the steps of the Second Baptist Church, plenty of course support from the police, firefighters, and volunteers along the closed course, chip timing, really nice technical t-shirts, and a fun race for kids. This race really is the Super Bowl of Lake-area 5Ks, and it perennially attracts a big field with some of the fastest runners in the area. 

Registration is now open online, or you can download a registration form to mail to or drop off at Versailles Total Fitness.   The entry fee is $25 if you register on or before October 28th.  The fee rises to $35 beginning October 29th.  T-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register by October 13th

A quarter-mile kids run will follow the 5K and 1-mile events.  There's no entry fee, but also no t-shirt, for participants.  They will, however, receive finishers ribbons.
