SHOW-ME STATE GAMES (posted July 27th 

Congratulations to Lake-area runners Denzil Calton and Willard Haley for great races at Sunday's (July 27th) Show-Me State Games in Columbia. In the 5K, Denzil finished in 21:48, crossing the line fourth overall and winning the male 50-54 age group. In the 10K, Willard ran a 56:29 and placed second (of two) in the male 50-54 age group.

Another familiar name in the results was that of Sharon Schaefer, a two-time finisher of the Run for the Children Half Marathon.  Sharon ran uncontested in the female 60-64 age group in the 10K, and finished in an outstanding 1:02:34.

WIN FOR KC WOMEN'S TRIATHLON (posted July 27th)

Congratulations to Eldon resident Meagan Carroll for finishing Saturday's (July 26th) WIN for KC Women's Triathlon (500-meter swim, 10-mile bike and 5K run) in Kansas City.   This event, which was first held in 2009, has grown each year to become the biggest triathlon in the state, with 892 finishers this year.  It also sells out months in advance.

Meagan finished in 1:53:54, three minutes faster than last year.  Here are her splits:

Swim:         12:28  (2:29/100 meters)
T-1:              3:45
Bike:           54:42  (11.0 mph)
T-2:              2:02
Run:           40:56  (13:12/mile)
Finish:     1:53:54  (24th of 28 in female 20-24)

Full results can be found here.

The results didn't allow a search by city, so if I missed any Lake-area triathletes while scrolling down the long list of finishers, please let me know.

STOMP! OUT EPILEPSY AND SUDEP AWARENESS WALK (posted July 27th)   


The third annual STOMP! Out Epilepsy and SUDEP Awareness Walk (formerly known as Chelsea's Epilepsy Walk for SUDEP Awareness) will be held on Saturday, August 30th, at the Eldon Air Park Pavilion on North Franklin Street near the aquatics center.  The run/walk starts at 9:00 a.m., with registration opening at 8:00 a.m.  The cost is $25 for adults (13 and over) and $15 for children (7 to 12) if you register by the August 1st pre-registration deadline.  (Those fees rise to $35 and $20 after the deadline.)  Please go to this page for more information and to register.

Please note that this will not be a timed event.

This event is one of six being held around the country to benefit The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation.  Chelsea died in her sleep of an epileptic seizure in April 2009 at the age of 16.  SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) was ruled the cause of Chelsea's death, and takes up to 50,000 lives a year.  Epilepsy affects over three million Americans of all ages. 

These run/walks are being held to raise awareness of epilepsy and SUDEP, and to raise funds mainly to provide trained seizure-response dogs who can help detect when someone may be having a seizure, and then provide warnings and/or assistance in the situation.  (It's truly amazing that dogs can indeed be trained to do this.) 

The Eldon event is again being organized by a local resident whose granddaughter has epilepsy.

KYLE BILLINGTON MEMORIAL 5K (posted July 21st)

Two of our Lake-area runners competed at the Kyle Billington Memorial 5K in Jefferson City on Saturday (July 19th).

Jim McDermott won the 60 & over age group over four other competitors by finishing in 22:34.

In a very competitive male 50-59 age group, Willard Haley's 25:08 was only good for a ninth place finish among the total of twelve competitors.

The race brought out some extremely fast runners.  The overall male winner--35 year-old Magnus Holmstrom--crossed the line in 15:21.  Thirteen other runners finished in under twenty minutes.

Full results can be found here.

WIGGLE WAGGLE WALK (5K WALK/RUN) (updated July 20th)

A few dozen two- and four-legged runners and walkers turned out in Eldon on Saturday (July 19th) for the Wiggle Waggle Walk.  The 5K run/walk was a benefit for the Eldon Animal Control Center, and funds raised at the event will be used to support the Center's work in transporting, spaying, neutering, and providing medical and other needs for animals in the Eldon area.

This is the fourth year for this event, and is organized by the Camdenton Area Chamber of Commerce.

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

Versailles Total Fitness' fourth annual Give 'Em The Bird 5K run, 1-mile walk and kids' quarter-mile fun run will be held on Saturday, November 1st.  It starts at 9:00 a.m. at Versailles Total Fitness at 131 N. Monroe (course map).  As in previous years, proceeds from the event will help local families in need during the holiday season; last year's event raised $6,000 for Food for Morgan County.

Give 'Em The Bird has the biggest "wow" factor of any 5K in the Lake area.  Last year's race, for instance, included a live radio broadcast and music by race co-sponsor KS95.1 at the start/finish line, a live singing of the national anthem, a live musical group performing in front of the Morgan County courthouse, the Versailles High School cheerleaders cheering along the course, and plenty of course support from the police, firefighters, and volunteers.  To top it off, the kids fun run was the cutest race we watched all year.  Still not convinced you want to go?  Watch this.   

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 31st, or $35 on race day.  T-shirts can only be guaranteed to those who register by October 15th

There's no entry fee, but also no t-shirt, for participants in the kids fun run.  Participants will, however, receive finishers ribbons.
