DAVID'S TRAIL ENDURANCE RUN (posted January 19th)

Thirteen of our Lake-area runners traveled to Mountain Home, Arkansas on Saturday for the fifth annual David's Trail Endurance Run (Facebook page).  They faced much milder weather conditions than those at last year's race, although still far from ideal.  Temperatures hovered around 50°, but breezy winds (with gusts up to 25 mph) and overcast skies made it feel colder. 

The Lake-area entourage: John Shelby, Chris Boyle, Aaron Koeppen, Tucker Seise, Gary Braman, Katie Roberts, Stacy Roberts, Rob Kucsik, Scott Page, Alysia Maschino, Todd Raney, Mark Kempf and Mark Matthews. (Photo provided by Scott Page.)

Scott Page took home local bragging rights in the 50K, finishing in 6:27:26--13 minutes ahead of last year.  In the 25K, Tucker Seise took third overall (of 102 competitors), finishing in 2:07:25.

Katie Roberts and John Shelby earned podium spots in their age groups in the 25K and 50K, respectively.

Here are results for our Lake-area runners, plus a few runners familiar to us:

CHOCOLATE LOVER'S 5K RUN/WALK (posted December 3rd)

A brand-new, Valentine's Day-themed 5K is coming to Versailles in February. The Project Graduation Class of 2020 is holding a Chocolate Lover's 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, February 9th, at the Morgan County R-II High School (known more commonly as Versailles High School).

The run/walk starts at 1:00 p.m.   Race-day packet pickup will begin at 11:00 a.m.   Stick around after the race for all kinds of chocolate treats.

The entry fee is $25 through February 8th, and $35 on race day. The registration deadline to be guaranteed a t-shirt in your size on race day is January 20th.   Kids attending with paid adults can participate free, although no t-shirts or medals will be provided.

Complete event information, with a link to online registration, can be found here.

TAME THE DRAGON (posted January 9th)

A new event is coming to the Lake of the Ozarks State Park on Saturday, February 29th.  The St. Louis Orienteering Club will be hosting the inaugural Tame the Dragon orienteering race. The race format will be an 8-hour rogaine, and will start at 8:00 a.m.  Additional details will be announced soon.

A "rogaine" (it's name is derived from the first names of three Australians--Rod, Gall and Neil--who developed the idea decades ago) consists of solo competitors or teams navigating a large area to find as many checkpoints as possible within the allotted time.  The winner is that solo competitor or team which finds all of the checkpoints and reaches the finish line first.  If no one finds all of the checkpoints, the winner is the one that collects the most points.  (Checkpoints have different point values, so focusing on the most valuable checkpoints is a possible winning strategy.)

Prior to the race, each competitor receives a map and a list of checkpoint coordinates.  They then plot their own course route, and rely on their navigational skills and speed to collect as many points as possible, and as quickly as possible.  Needless to say, GPS units aren't allowed.

Orienteering races are generally self-supporting.  Competitors should be prepared to rely only on what they (or their teammates) bring or carry with them.

WHOBILATION 5K RUN/WALK (updated December 26th)

The entry fee is $30 until January 31st, and $35 after.

A mail-in registration form can be downloaded here, or you can register online.

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).

4 FORE 30 (updated December 11th) 

Registration is now open for next year's 4 Fore 30race, 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.
