Quickie:  Lawyers have been circling around large, for-profit race organizations like the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon series and the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), which produces triathlons under the Ironman banner.  In short, these organizations are being sued for not paying volunteers at their events. 

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), for-profit corporations are not allowed to use unpaid labor.  By using volunteers at their events, these organizations are claimed to be violating the FLSA.  The latest lawsuit was filed last week by a volunteer (who just happens to be a St. Louis University law school professor) who volunteered at the Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Marathon in 2012.  The suit seeks compensation for volunteers at all Rock 'n' Roll events over the past two years.

These lawsuits bear watching.  If the plaintiffs win, you can expect race fees to go up at these companies' events, as well as fewer people to do the things at races that volunteers once did. Some marginally profitable races may fold due to the added expense.

It should be pointed out that the outcome of these lawsuits won't affect just the big for-profit race organizations.  Many smaller ones, such as Ultramax Sports, have to be concerned as well.

ROCK 'N' ROLL ST. LOUIS MARATHON & HALF MARATHON (updated October 28th)

The Lake area had twenty runners participating in the fourth annual Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis Marathon & Half Marathon on Sunday (October 19th). 

Most notable of all of our finishers was Beth Coulter, who completed her very first marathon, in 4:54:10.  Beth finished 52nd (of 94) in the female 35-39 age group. 

Pete and Anita Leyva were our fastest half marathon finishers in 1:40:31 and 1:48:00, respectively, and were just minutes behind their near-PR finish times last year. Both finished in the top 5% of their age groups.

Another high age-group finisher was Cindy Wismer of Camdenton.  Cindy completed the half marathon in 2:00:03, placing 11th (of 174) in the female 55-59 age group.

Listed below are results for all of our local runners.  If I missed anyone, please let me know.

Complete race results can be found here.

It's worth noting that participation at this year's race fell from last year, a trend that's now continued each year since the inaugural race in 2011.  This year's race had a total of 7,560 solo marathon and half marathon finishers.  That's down 16% from last year, and a whopping 58% from 2011.  The organizers have to be wondering what they can do to stop the bleeding.

DES MOINES MARATHON (posted October 19th)


Twenty-one hours after completing the Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon on Saturday, Ashley Pryor and Todd Raney were at the starting line of the Des Moines Marathon, hoping to become finishers of not only that race, but the I-35 Challenge as well.  A field limit of 50 runners were registered for the I-35 marathon challenge, and another 150 for the half marathon challenge.


Click for larger image.

Ashley finished in 4:00:08, placing 35th (of 113) in the female 30-34 age group.  That was about four minutes faster than her finish the day before.

Todd wasn't as fast on Sunday as he was on Saturday, but he still finished in 4:11:54.  That was good for 62nd place (of 122 competitors) in the male 45-49 age group.

The Lake area team of Jim Jackson and Josh Schrock competed in Saturday's (October 18th) Perfect 10 Rogaine orienteering race in the Lake of the Ozarks State Park, and finished eighth (of eleven) in the male-open division.  The nature of the race is to accumulate as many points as possible by orienteering to all of the checkpoints within the time limit of ten hours.

TOUGH PUNKIN 1-MILE FUN RUN & 5K (updated October 19th)



Click on photo for a larger image.

A great time was had by all at the Tough Punkin 1-Mile Fun Run & 5K on Saturday (October 18th) at Heritage Elementary School in Lake Ozark. The run/walk kicked off the school's Pumpkin Festival put on by the Heritage Elementary PTA.  Three BIG slides and bounce houses were stationed at various parts of the courses, and the kids--including a few older ones-- had a blast playing on them.

WADDELL & REED KANSAS CITY MARATHON, MARATHON RELAY, HALF MARATHON & 5K (posted October 19th)

The Lake area was represented by ten runners at the Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon & Half Marathon on Saturday (October 18th)--the largest number that we've ever had participate in that event.

Two of our runners competed in the marathon.  Todd Raney finished in 3:55:17--his fastest marathon so far this year, and just 1:36 slower than his personal best that was set at this race last year.  Ashley Pryor finished in 4:03:47, placing 23rd (of 108) in the female 30-34 age group. 

Congratulations to April Boicourt for completing her very first half marathon.  April finished in 2:08:45.  She passed along some photos, including one showing a great t-shirt for a race:  "If found on ground, please drag over finish line".

It's interesting to note from the race results that the margin of victory in the half marathon was just three seconds.  The winner crossed the line in an incredible 1:08:25.

Participation in this year's race totaled 6,942 runners, down 23% from the all-time peak of 8,912 set last year.  Waddell & Reed Kansas City bucked the downward trend in participation experienced by most other big races last year, but now they appear to have fallen in line.  This year's total takes them back to 2009 levels. 

Here are the results for Lake-area runners.  Please let me know if I missed anyone.

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.

FREEZIN' 5K FUN RUN/WALK & CHILLIN' FOR CHILI COOK-OFF (updated October 10th)

The fifth annual run/walk in memory of Camdenton police officer Floyd Sanders and two others--Mike Marshall and Iris Carnahan--in our community who succumbed to pancreatic cancer will be held on Saturday, November 8th at the Linn Creek City Park (map).   This year's event will also include a chili cook-off shortly after the 5K.  Proceeds from both events will go to the Lustgarten Foundation to support research for a cure for pancreatic cancer.  Everyone is encouraged to wear purple on the day of the event.

The Freezin' 5K will begin at 10:00 a.m., with race-day registration beginning at 9:00 a.m.   The entry fee is $25 for individuals, or $50 for families up to four.  To guarantee your t-shirt on race day, you must register by October 24th.  Click here to download a registration form.

The Chillin' for Chili Cook-Off begins with registration at 11:30 a.m., followed by serving at noon, judging at 12:30, and awards at 1:30. The entry fee is $50 for teams up to four people. For full details and to download a registration form, click here.
